Stop Making Sense was the first feature-length documentary effort of filmmaker Jonathan Demme, about new wave/pop-rock band The Talking Heads. The film was made during a three-day concert gig at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood. Though some of the material overlaps with the earlier concert film The Name of This Band is Talking Heads, one never gets the feeling of by-the-numbers repetition; the group's energy is such that it virtually explodes from the screen.
