Lauded as the “greatest concert movie ever…” by Rolling Stone, this euphoric film transcends the all-too-limited genre to become one of the best and most memorable films of its kind. Over the course of three nights at Hollywood’s Pantages Theater in December 1983, filmmaker Jonathan Demme joined creative forces with cinematographer Jordan Cronenweth and Talking Heads…and miracles occurred.

Following a staging concept by singer-guitarist David Byrne, Stop Making Sense is a celebration of music that never grows old, fueled by the polyrhythmic pop-funk precision that was a Talking Heads trademark, and lit from within by the geeky supernova that is David Byrne.
