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.

" Director: Jonathan Demme His 8th Movie. My 14th movie watched from the director. I finally get the chance to watch this legendary concert film. It's creative, entertaining, and what concert movies have probably tried to top since, and likely failed. Still not as great as "The Last Waltz" but the reputation is understandable. Strong choice for the first film of the year! Added to Lists: Inspiration for "Documentary Now" Best Music Documentaries Best Performance Documentaries "
