Justin Purwitsky’s review published on Letterboxd:
Since I start reviewing films I haven't yet scored a perfect 100 out of 100 but this film here, this masterpiece, is as close to perfection as you can get. Everything about this film is amazing. Everything works so well. It has rightly been called and is still considered one of, if not the best rock concert ever filmed.
The music and visuals play perfectly together.
The stage set-up/progression is fantastic.
The music is unbelievable.
The performance by the band and others is utterly amazing.
The cinematography could not be better.
The costumes are legendary.
The film is addictive.
The band seems so cool.
The entire thing doesn't feel dated at all.
The film will make you a fan of Talking Heads.
The film will show you why Jonathan Demme is one of the greatest rock documentary directors out there.
The film will be played again by you the second it ends.
The music will make you dance like you've never danced before.
There are not enough words to describe how good this is. Too good to be true and at least for me it needs to be watched at least once a year.
Don't rent it, don't download it, don't stream it. Go and buy it and love it and have yourself a solo or group dance party (cause you will, I promise).
