Next week, Palm Pictures launches a 25th-anniversary Blu-ray release of Stop Making Sense. Back in 1983, Director Jonathan Demme teamed up with cinematographer Jordan Cronenweth and the Talking Heads to document three nights of shows at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood.
Twenty five years ago. Good gravy.
I saw Stop Making Sense at the Coolidge Corner Theatre which should tell you all you need to know about how shit-kickin’ cool I am.
Check it, the original movie trailer. Kinda gets me fired up to see it again. (This is actually a re-mastered version of the original trailer which was re-released 10 years ago on the occasion of the film’s 15th anniversary…)
And speaking of Jonathan Demme movies, this is a perfect excuse to share a clip from his film Swimming to Cambodia with Spalding Gray, one of my favorites. RIP
