Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense ★★★★

Absolutely joyous, and I'm not even a big Talking Heads guy. When concert movies are done right (and Demme made a giant of the genre here), they use their lack of narrative and character to their advantage to channel the pure energy of the performance. It's impossible not to get wrapped up in the stagecraft and David Byrne's singularly weird and lanky movements, and the whole thing is just a delight.
