Stop Making Sense

Where to watch

Why stop making sense? Why a movie? Why a big suit? Where do the odd movements come from? What will the band do next?

A concert film documenting Talking Heads at the height of their popularity, on tour for their 1983 album "Speaking in Tongues." The band takes the stage one by one and is joined by a cadre of guest musicians for a career-spanning and cinematic performance that features creative choreography and visuals.
