Stop Making Sense
I don't have a whole ton to say about this one. I'm not a huge Talking Heads fan so some of the songs just kind of washed over me to the point where I only really appreciated the visuals. I guess that's fine, though, because Jonathan Demme does a great job filming this show. This might be the defining motion picture, because everything except the ground the performers are standing on is constantly moving. The camera moves, the singers move, the instrumentalists (lol) move. There's a certain energy here that's hard to deny. Highlights for me include the opening performance of "Psycho Killer", the strobes during whatever song that was, and all of "Take Me To the River". Byrne is mesmerizing to watch, and if I had some greater attachment to the music this would probably be on my Top 100 list too.
