Stop Making Sense

One of the best concert films of all time! ” Gus TPH

FOUR PILLARS X TPH SUMMER FILM FEST: This is the concert film all other concert films want to be like and few films start so inauspiciously as Stop Making Sense.
“Talking Heads frontman David Byrne walks onto a bare stage at the Pantages Theater in Los Angeles wearing a grey suit and white sneakers and carrying a boombox. “Hi,” he tells the crowd. “I got a tape I want to play.” He puts down the stereo, launches into “Psycho Killer,” and everything comes to life. Byrne breaks into wide-eyed staccato dance moves, the audience whistles in appreciation, and the show only gets better from there. It’s everything anyone who ever bought a concert ticket wishes would happen when a band takes the stage.” Wired

This screening forms part of a double-bill with the other outstanding live concert film, SUMMER OF SOUL.
