About the Movie

STOP MAKING SENSE is acclaimed director Jonathan Demme's remarkable concert film that captures the enormous energy and joyous highs of the Talking Heads live performance. Band members David Byrne, Tina Weymouth, Chris Frantz and Jerry Harrison are joined by Bernie Worrell, Alex Weir, Steve Scales, Lynn Mabry and Edna Holt in this groundbreaking concert film that is packed with the Talking Heads most memorable songs. Wall-to-wall music, beautiful cinematography and the legendary "Big Suit" make this "one of the greatest rock movies ever made." (Rolling Stone)

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. – Paul Attanasio, Washington Post, Jan 2, 2018

Fresh: Stop Making Sense is a concert film with a narrative, bursting at the seams with bits of invention and passion. – Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine, Feb 1, 2015

Customer Reviews

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.
