Stop Making Sense

30th Anniversary Screening!
New Digital Print!

Visual wit and dynamic rhythms faithfully and inventively convey the near-religious fervor of a Talking Heads concert. Demme’s rockumentary won laurels for being a new breed of performance film, one which showcases a band’s unique personality rather than the director’s pyrotechnics. Shunning clips of frothing crowds and backstage doodlings, Demme and figure-Head David Byrne have constructed a film which builds to a rousing crescendo as additional performers join the stage with each successive song, augmenting what begins with a solo acoustic rendering of “Psycho Killer” by Byrne. Truly a scintillating celebration of rock ’n’ roll.

USA, 1984, In English, 88 min, Unrated, Directed by Jonathan Demme
