Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense

FREE THIRTIETH ANNIVERSARY SCREENING!


There are rock movies, there are concert movies, there are documentaries, and then there’s STOP MAKING SENSE. Simply put, the best concert movie ever made, STOP MAKING SENSE captures the Talking Heads at the peak of their considerable power. Shot over three nights in December 1983, the Talking Heads’ nine-member (!) live powerhouse tears through their catalog of brainy, body-moving jams, coming across like a deeply neurotic riff on James Brown and the Famous Flames. Plus, you’ll see David Byrne in a gigantic suit and hear some Tom Tom Club songs!


Director: Jonathan Demme. 1984. Digital. 88 minutes.
