Really does deserve the praise it gets

I saw this in the theatre back in 1984 and remember liking it. I like the Talking Heads and think this was made during the peak of their career. I like Demme and think this was made during the peak of his career. Still, I kind of suspected that if I watched it again I would think that the adulation this film garners is a bit overblown. No, I was wrong. This really is the work of a a band and a director at the peak of their powers and meshing completely.

brilliant concert doc

Featuring one of the most creative and talented bands of (arguably) all time, and directed by one of the most creative and talented filmmakers of (arguably) all time comes an exciting and energetic concert film that is bound to make you want to get up and dance!

David Byrne shows off his skills for energetic motion all throughout this film, running around the stage, doing swift twitching motions, dancing with all of his might, and every now and then pulling off some spectacular slapstick comedy that feels as if its right out of a Buster Keaton movie! The energy and movement captured all throughout this film is part of what makes it so great. Watching Talking Heads perform live is not quite like watching any other band perform live. Their style is practically begging to be recorded on film and watched on a big screen with a quality sound system. Watching and hearing this band is a breathtaking and entertaining ride, and it is only made better by Jonathan Demme's excellent and at times experimental filmmaking. Its a visually beautiful and stunning piece of art that is among the absolute greatest of its kind.

Brilliant - one of the greatest ever concert films

Brilliant - one of the greatest ever concert films.

A Talking Heads concert from 1984, recorded at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood. We have the band - David Byrne, Tina Weymouth, Jerry Harrison and Chris Frantz - plus several very talented backing singers and musicians. The Talking Heads offshoot, the Tom Tom Club (Weymouth and Franz, plus backing musicians), also performs a few songs.

This is Talking Heads at their peak, creativity-wise and popularity- wise. Incredible concert - the band seemed to be having a whole lot of fun and the music is fantastic. There is also the stage theatrics, largely by frontman David Byrne, and these amount to performance art.

The only concert films that surpass this, I think, are The Band's The Last Waltz and the Bob Dylan 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration.
