In 1984, indie filmmaker Jonathan Demme got the cooperation of 80s cult rock band Talking Heads to film their live show at the Pantages Theater. The result is Stop Making Sense, a concert film that elevated the status of both the band and the director though credited ingenuity of presentation, music and aesthetics. But does the film (or the band) deserve the acclaim or should it be burnt down along with the house? MovieDude Eric, Kent and Chris grab front row seats to find out.
