Stop Making Sense - October 13


In an early announcement to retailers, it has been revealed that Palm Pictures and Umvd/Visual Entertainment will release the Talking Heads concert film 'Stop Making Sense' on Blu-ray on October 13. No information on audio or video specifications or special features is available yet.

The set list is as follows:

1. Psycho Killer
2. Heaven
3. Thank You for Sending Me an Angel
4. Found a Job
5. Slippery People
6. Burning Down the House
7. Life During Wartime
8. Making Flippy Floppy
9. Swamp
10. What a Day That Was
11. This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)
12. Once in a Lifetime
13. Genius of Love (Tom Tom Club)
14. Girlfriend is Better
15. Take Me to the River
16. Crosseyed and Painless

'Stop Making Sense' is widely considered to be one of the finest concert films of all time. It was directed by Jonathan Demme ('The Silence of the Lambs') and lensed by cinematographer Jordan Cronenweth ('Blade Runner'), with an approach that intently avoided many genre clichés: no fast cutting, no audience shots, no flashy color scheme. Instead, uniqueness is achieved by novel ideas such as opening on a bare stage, expressionistic lighting or David Byrne's famous "big suit".
If they don't screw it up (someone in the comments mentions that the DVD has the reel cues!) I'm all over this. Without a doubt the best concert film ever.

Talking Head are my all time favorite band. Day one purchase....or I might get a part time job at Best Buy and start (and quit) Oct 12th....hmmmm. I am halfway kidding.

Easily the best concert film ever made!

Talking Heads are an incredible band and they sound even better live. David Byrne opening up the set by switching on a tape deck was just awesome.

I hope they do a good job with the transfer.

It appears to be Universal, do they usually region lock?

Yes! Did not know this was announced. This concert is PHENOMENAL! I have turned so many people into Talking Heads fans w/ the dvd. I encourage ANY music fan to purchase this, Blind Buy it, you will not be disapppointed. On another note, anybody know anything thing on a Portishead Blu Ray in the works?
