Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense ★★★★★

Does anybody have any questions?

The first time I watched this film, I was depressed over something that in retrospect, was fucking stupid. The second time I watched it, I thought I was going deaf in my left ear, so I watched it almost out of fear. Despite these slight set backs, the film still cracked my top 20. Now, with a more stable emotional state and a completely healthy left ear, I come back to Stop Making Sense one more time, and holy shit, it’s amazing. Admittedly, I haven’t seen many concert films, but I doubt that I could ever find one that even comes close to the cinematic perfection that is found here. Watching this is the most cathartic thing I’ve gone through in quite some time. The performance of This Must Be The Place drew actual, legitimate tears out of my eyes, and pure emotion out of my soul. Everything is top notch, the directing, the production value, and most importantly, the musical mastery of the band. One of the greatest films I’ve ever seen, without a shadow of a doubt.
