Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense ★★★★★

No words can truly describe how BRILLIANT this film is. Every single bit of it. The sound quality is amazing, the cinematography is so good it ACTUALLY might be better than being there live, and the music is all so incredible. I was pretty cautious going into this because I was just surprised that one of the highest rated things on this website is a concert film. Guess what? IT DESERVES IT.

Also I'm just gonna be real here. David Byrne makes me FEEL THINGS. I love him. He's powerful. Anyway the energy on display by all the performers is so captivating and it doesn't even feel like they are just performing the songs, but living them too. I think a lot of live shows tend to suffer from fatigue and the artists not necessarily loving what they are doing at that point, but everyone in this looks to be having the time of their lives and it comes through into the recording. I for one, could not stop dancing.

Even if you are not a fan of The Talking Heads, the production quality of this is so fantastic that it is worth a watch just for that. And you get to see David Byrne in his big suit dancing around. And that is better than 75% of movies by itself.
