Stop Making Sense

Has there ever been a better performance film, one as vibrant as this? We certainly don’t think so. Jonathan Demme made his documentary debut with this infectious masterpiece showcasing the Talking Heads, just after their big mainstream success with the album Speaking in Tongues and the single “Burning Down the House.” You don’t even need to be a Talking Heads fan to love Stop Making Sense. When we showed it in 2014with Jonathan and David Byrne in the house—the audience was dancing in the aisles.
