Subject: "Stop Making Sense" movie (1984) Hit or Miss

Written By: woops on 05/30/07 at 2:04 am

Have anybody seen "Stop Making Sense", a concert film  featuring Talking Heads directed by Johnathan Demme?

"Girlfriend Is Better", "Once In A Lifetime", "Burning Down The House", "Take Me To The River",  and "Genius Of Love" (Tom Tom Club) would be among the best from the film.

I actually watch it once a month...it's one of my favorite films...not just concert films.  I love to watch David Byrn'es transition from art nerd to guitar god....and the others put on a great show. Tina carries "Genius of Love" well and Jerry Harrison dancing with the back up singers..however badly is funny and charming.

I think it was a great show movie.  Very low tech yet theatrical.

I'm a fan.

I enjoyed it.  It has an art house feel.

I originally saw it in the theater on the big screen.

I've watched it quite recently.  I give it two big thumbs up...  :)
