Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It's a treat for fans (Heads heads?), and a chance for the uninitiated to tune in to the band that has come to personify postmodernist rock 'n' roll.
Fresh: Stop Making Sense is a concert film with a narrative, bursting at the seams with bits of invention and passion.
The best concert ever!
I have seen hundreds of concerts. Many have been amazing, none have surpassed this one. Byrnes energy is unbelievable.
The way each member of the band comes out is perfect. The song selection is brilliant.
You need to watch this entire video to truly appreciate how genius it really is.
You will not be disappointed.
Just a CONCERT - no behind the scenes
I loved this band and wanted to hear their story. Should have read that this is a recorded LIVE CONCERT ONLY.
Simply, unequivocally, resoundingly YES.
