Reel Music 32: STOP MAKING SENSE – 30th Anniversary Screening!

Stop Making Sense

Thirty years after its release, Demme’s extraordinary Talking Heads concert movie, filmed over the course of three days at Hollywood’s historic Pantages Theatre, remains as fresh as ever. With each successive song band members, instruments and set pieces slowly join frontman David Byrne on stage, culminating in a full-blast, high-energy rockout. Featuring performances of “Psycho Killer,” “Take Me to the River,” “Girlfriend Is Better,” and countless other hits by the legendary new wave group, this innovative documentary debut is “close to perfection.”—Pauline Kael, The New Yorker. (88 mins.)
