Universally acclaimed as one of the best concert films ever made, Stop Making Sense, documents the groundbreaking Talking Heads at their peak in the early 1980’s. "A rock concert film that looks and sounds like no other.”(Janet Maslin, New York Times) "A dose of happiness from beginning to end. Stop Making Sense is close to perfection." (Pauline Kael, New Yorker Magazine) "The Talking Heads put on a tremendous show -- erudite, funny, funky...Stop Making Sense is a dynamic rock film, as suited to its place in history, musically and visually, as 'Woodstock' was to the 60’s." (Rita Kempley, Washington Post)
