This quintessential music film features the incredible music of Talking Heads. Jonathan Demme revolutionised the art of shooting rock concerts with this innovative and lively record of the Talking Heads. Filmed at the Pantages Theater in Los Angeles, California, this video cements the group's place as one of the day's most unique rock groups. Among the 18 songs included are "Take Me to the River," "Once in a Lifetime," and "Burnin' Down the House." Starting with a solo by David Byrne, the film escalates as the other members join in. 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.
