"Jonathan Demme's Stop Making Sense captures the energetic, unpredictable
live act of peak Talking Heads with color and visual wit."
ROTTEN TOMATOES


"Talking Heads made for great material, with its revolutionary mash-up of punk, funk, art, avant-garde and other sounds. But what sets "Stop" apart is the intimate look at that brilliant talking head, lead singer David Byrne."
LOS ANGELES TIMES
