Never-Trump conservatives for Joe Biden are patriots and role models

Stop Making Sense

Talking Heads release their concert movie in theaters October 19, 1984. It’s conceived by David Byrne and sculpted by director Jonathan Demme. His girlfriend, fellow filmmaker Sandy McLeod, followed the band on tour to note how they moved on stage and how it could translate to film. On December 13, 14 and 15, Demme shot their concerts at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood.

The response from both the public and reviewers are positive. It’s now considered by many to be one of the greatest music/concert films of all time. As well it should be.
