“…close to perfection.”—The New Yorker
Palm Pictures will release the Talking Heads’ acclaimed concert film Stop Making Sense for the first time digitally on July 15. Directed by Jonathan Demme (The Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia) and produced by Gary Goetzman (The Silence of the Lambs, Where the Wild Things Are), Stop Making Sense was originally released in 1984 and has continued to receive critical acclaim: The New York Times raves “Mr. Demme has captured both the look and the spirit of this live performance with a daring and precision that match the group’s own” while the Los Angeles Times proclaims “[David] Byrne, drummer Chris Frantz, bassist Tina Weymouth and keyboardist Jerry Harrison seemed to be simply bursting with inspired elements to pack into Stop Making Sense” and the AV Club declares “There never has been, and in all likelihood never will be, a more glorious intersection of live music and cinema than Stop Making Sense.” A special limited theatrical engagement of the film will begin this summer, including screenings in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Watch a montage from the film here.
