- Jonathan Demme
- The Talking Heads
In 1984, nobody was making music like the Talking Heads, and nobody was making films like Jonathan Demme. It was inevitable for them to join forces and make a concert film unlike anything that anyone had seen before. Gone are the shots of the audience and backstage banter; the band’s elaborate stage show is the focus. Starting out sparse, with David Byrne alone with his guitar for “Psycho Killer,” the band grows and the set builds, reaching a climax with the energetic “Once In a Lifetime.” The set also features favorites “Life During Wartime,” “Burning Down the House,” and the film debut of David Byrne’s really big suit. Shown in celebration of the film’s 30th Anniversary.
