Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense

Has there ever been a music film with the unforgettably propulsive energy conveyed to the screen of Stop Making Sense? Jonathan’s first documentary hits a grand slam home run off a true curve ball as The Talking Heads, the idiosyncratic newwave group led by David Byrne, burn up both the stage at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood and the imagination of viewers. The group’s energy is so intense that it practically explodes from the screen. The band and the movie are both simultaneously compulsively danceable and thinkable.
