Event Description

A new 40th anniversary restoration of the classic concert movie, filmed over three nights at Hollywood’s Pantages Theater in 1983. A man walks onstage with a guitar. There is a boombox waiting for him. He presses play on the boombox and starts to sing. The world changes. The man is David Byrne, the band is Talking Heads, the song is “Psycho Killer,” and the movie is Stop Making Sense, directed by Jonathan Demme. Four decades later, we live in a culture shaped by all of them. Stop Making Sense didn’t invent the concert film…but Demme perfected it, working with Byrne and bandmates Chris Frantz, Jerry Harrison, and Tina Weymouth to create the ideal visual representation of a band built on precision and minimalism. Stop Making Sense is a master class in how to shoot live performance, as Demme and Blade Runner cinematographer Jordan Cronenweth strip the Heads down to their essential parts and then fill everything back in, taking full advantage of the cinematic possibilities. Now with a glorious 4K restoration, if you’ve never seen this film in a movie theatre, you are about to have a wonderful time. Hold tight, cool babies.—Norm Wilner, TIFF
