Stop Making Sense

Oscar-winning director Jonathan Demme (The Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia) captures the frantic energy and artsy groove of Talking Heads in this 1984 classic concert movie shot at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre.

The band’s frontman, David Byrne, first appears on an empty stage, armed with only an acoustic guitar, and is gradually joined by bassist Tina Weymouth, drummer Chris Frantz, keyboardist Jerry Harrison and a cadre of backup singers as they perform the band’s hits, culminating in an iconic performance featuring Byrne in an enormous suit.
