STOP MAKING SENSE
August 28, 2015
Doors 7:00 PM | Showtime 7:30 PM
If you Google "greatest concert movies of all time," this Talking Heads performance film consistently ranks in the top three, and is more often than not at the very top of that list. Directed by the great Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia, Swimming to Cambodia), Talking Heads are backed up by funk greats Bernie Worrell, Alex Weir, Steve Scales, Lynn Mabry, and Ednah Holt, bringing an infectious vitality to the performance. From the opening number Psycho Killer--just David Byrne on a bare stage with an acoustic guitar and a cassette player--to the frenetic, joyful Crosseyed and Painless that concludes the show, STOP MAKING SENSE builds in complexity and energy, until remaining in your seat simply becomes impossible. Not a Talking Heads fan? You will be.
1984 | 88 min. | Admission $5.00
