Originally shot over the course of the band’s three-night run at Hollywood’s Pantages Theater in December of 1983, the Talking Heads 1984 documentary Stop Making Sense is widely considered to be the greatest concert film of all. To commemorate the band’s upcoming 40th anniversary, the iconic film will see a celebratory 4K re-release, led by none other production company than A24.
Directed by Jonathan Demm, Stop Making Sense features some of the band’s biggest hits and stars the band’s key members: David Byrne, Tina Weymouth, Chris Frantz and Jerry Harrison, as well as Bernie Worrell, Alex Weir, Steve Scales, Lynn Mabry and Edna Holt.
