Talking Heads: Stop Making Sense

A film by Jonathan Demme
Starring The Talking Heads

The Talking Heads live on stage. Need we say more?

Director Jonathan Demme expertly crafted this unrivaled concert film from footage of three live gigs at Hollywood’s Pantages Theatre. The staging concept — the brainchild of Talking Heads front man David Byrne — begins with the lead vocalist striding onto an empty stage, acoustic guitar and boom box in hand. With each new tune, another band member or backup singer joins Byrne onstage, building steadily toward the smokin’ finale.
