ITEM#: 2515291

Those who aren't familiar with the work of seminal 1980s band The Talking Heads may find themselves becoming instant fans after viewing this incredibly entertaining concert film. It starts with David Byrne stepping out alone on empty stage with an acoustic guitar to sing "Psycho Killer." The rest of the musicians follow one by one and the stage gradually fills to bursting with powerful, tightly orchestrated brilliance. Director Jonathan Demme (SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, PHILADEPLPHIA) expertly captures the music's energy, fusing cinema with performance to create something more than the sum of its parts. Through it all, Byrne comes off as a charismatic artist of supernatural energy and robotic precision, and he's backed by an equally inspired group of musicians, including bassist Tina Weymouth. Artistically ambitious, filled with joyous but controlled energy, this is considered by many critics to be the best concert film of all time. Songs performed include "Take Me to the River," "Once in a Lifetime," "Girlfriend is Better," "Burnin' Down the House" and a hilarious cover of "Genius of Love, " by the Tom-Tom Club (a side project for bassist Tina Weymouth and drummer Christ Frantz). It was filmed at the Pantages Theater in Los Angeles.

  • One of the best concert videos ever.
    Verified Purchase

    If you like powerful, electric performances, this is for you. From about 1984, this is vintage rock and roll.

  • Interesting Conveyance of the Music, but . . .
    Verified Purchase

    If you are a Talking Heads/David Byrne fan, then this is an essential addition to your media collection. The song selection is broader than on the CD, but does not add much to the experience. However, the video presentation, though perhaps "artful" and expressive of the spastic energy of David Byrne, is stark in its colorless renderings and doesn't drive much for a repeat viewing experience beyond the initial interest in the odd behavior and great Talking Heads music collection.
