It has to be said that before viewing this film, I really had no idea what to expect since I was not familiar with the band "The Talking Heads." What may be more surprising is how astounded I was by the whole the 88 minutes of their three day concert in Hollywood that just rolled on by. Unlike typical concert films, this one is just pretty much continuous footage of this group performing their songs, including title tune, with no plot line what-so-ever. This maybe the best film from 1984. Tremendously riveting concert film that needs no additional storyline or corruption or background footage to succeed. The movie is essentially the members of the famous, unique rock band performing their songs, and wow, they are excellent performances. The instruments are very unique, the costumes are cool, the ladies are hot, and the singing is incredibly good. A must for any movie, documentary, and music (everything in general, not just rock or punk or new wave) buff!
