Feature Friday: “Stop Making Sense” (1984)

As time passes, I only like Talking Heads more and more. Recently I’ve been revisiting their discography, one album/week, and it’s just staggering. This week I hit Stop Making Sense, a film I’ve always admired, but found a newfound respect for when I tried directing some theatrical events a few years back (really amateurish stuff). Stop Making Sense makes it all look so easy; every second is flawless. And when David Byrne dances with the lamp, during “This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody),” I swear, it’s just so beautiful and so perfect…
