Stop Making Sense: David Byrne walks onto the stage and does a solo "Psycho Killer." Jerry Harrison, Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz join him for two more songs. The crew is busy, still setting up. Then, three more musicians and two back-up singers join the band. Everybody sings, plays, harmonizes, dances, and runs. They change instruments and clothes. Bryne appears in the Big Suit. The backdrop is often black, but sometimes it displays words, images, or children's drawings. The band cooks for 18 songs, the lyrics are clear, the house rocks. In this concert film, the Talking Heads hardly talk, don't stop, and always make sense.

The avant-garde Talking Heads give a great concert plus. Keeping it tight throughout, these nine artists just have so much fun doing so, dammit. A must see for anyone interested in new wave post-punk music. A solid 5/5 from me.

A lesson in dancing you'll never forget. You may ask yourself, how does this work? Entertainment at it's finest, you'll be very lucky if you ever get to see a music group perform such a thoroughly thought through show this confidently. Uplifting, inspiring and a big suit full of fun fun fun.

I had the good fortune to see one of the shows on this tour. It was definitely a "We dare you not to dance" peak experience. The movie captures the energy to the point you feel as if you were there.

How does one go on living a 'normal' life after viewing this? I have no answers. Epic and life-affirming. Absolute genius. This film should be playing perpetually at the Museum of Modern Art.
