Movie events and revivals: May 21-27

Stop Making Sense (1984) was director Jonathan Demme’s first foray into documentary concert films. Shot during a three-night engagement at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre, the film captured the avant-garde band Talking Heads at the peak of its fame and success and is widely considered one of the best of its genre. After Demme’s death in April, the band’s frontman, David Byrne, wrote in a tribute on the musician’s website, “[Demme’s] skill was to see the show almost as a theatrical ensemble piece, in which the characters and their quirks would be introduced to the audience.”
