Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense ★★★★★

The most joyous film ever made. The little moments where David Byrne is trying to perform stone-faced but can't help but smile could power me for weeks. Nothing makes me feel so exuberant, happy, nostalgic, and full of love as "This Must Be The Place." It breaks my heart that Talking Heads aren't friends anymore because more than anything, this movie feels like it works as an ode to/view on their friendship and how they work so perfectly together as performers.

I can't wait to be in a room with my friends again. Hugging them and crying and smiling across the room as we wriggle our stupid, sweaty little limbs around to this movie. Falling in love with all of them, taking stock of all our little idiosyncratic dances. Doing that thing where I'm enjoying myself a lot but I have a very present thought of "wow I am having so much fun and I am going to remember this moment right now forever."

Out of all those kinds of people
You got a face with a view
I'm just an animal looking for a home and
Share the same space for a minute or two
