Stop Making Sense

Directed by Jonathan Demme • 1984 • United States
Starring Talking Heads

Jonathan Demme captured lightning in a bottle with this ecstatic record of a 1983 Talking Heads concert, which features the band delivering euphoric performances of hits like "Psycho Killer," "Burning Down the House," and "This Must Be the Place." With his superbly judged, unobtrusive style, Demme lets the alien-like charisma of front man David Byrne-never more kookily compelling than when he struts out in the iconic big suit for a rendition of "Girlfriend Is Better"-take center stage to create what may just be the most joyous concert documentary ever made.
