David Byrne walks onto the stage and does a solo "Psycho Killer." Jerry Harrison, Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz join him for two more songs. The crew is busy, still setting up. Then, three more musicians and two back-up singers join the band. Everybody sings, plays, harmonizes, dances, and runs. They change instruments and clothes. Bryne appears in the Big Suit. The backdrop is often black, but sometimes it displays words, images, or children's drawings. The band cooks for 18 songs, the lyrics are clear, the house rocks. In this concert film, the Talking Heads hardly talk, don't stop, and always make sense.

"Classic concert film, and really fun to see Byrne move on stage like a true eccentric. The music catalog is imperfect in that a large portion of its runtime is devoted to post Remain in Light Talking Heads songs. This is certainly redeemed in the Once in a Lifetime and Life During Wartime performances, among other classic renditions."
