Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense ★★★★★

I only wanted to rewatch this so I could see David Byrne dance with a lamp again but I'll be goddamned if I didn't enjoy every single other second of this. Entertaining from start to finish, Byrne makes the most of an empty soundstage while his bandmates slowly join him with each song. Every performer gives their all and memorable moments are found in each song. The only film I've ever watched and not wanted to end. Perfection from the first frame to the last. My only complaint is that I wish I could've been there.
