Palm Pictures is proud to present the Blu-ray premiere of the groundbreaking Talking Heads concert film STOP MAKING SENSE directed by Academy Award ® Winner Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs). Entertainment Weekly described, the DVD s generous extras go a long way toward explaining the film s visual appeal: David Byrne and director Jonathan Demme contribute a smart audio commentary. The film has been remastered from the original 35mm source, allowing the brilliance of the visuals to take full advantage of Blu-ray technology.

I was NOT a Talking Heads fan. But I am now. Director Jonathan Demme’s STOP MAKING SENSE, listed by Entertainment Weekly as one of the Essential Independent Films when they produced that list years ago, has been called, by others, the greatest rock concert films of all time. Better than THE LAST WALTZ. Better than WOODSTOCK.

Kevin O'Conner says:

Almost there… This is undoubtedly the Talking Heads at both their creative and commercial peaks. ‘Speaking In Tongues’was their best album to date, and the live performances captured here imbue the music with a sense of unrestrained fun that was only hinted at on record.

Blu-ray version no better than regular DVD This review is primarily a comparison of the standard DVD to the blu-ray. See other reviews for more discussion of the performance itself.First, to be clear, I love the Talking Heads of this era (and earlier) and this concert. As many have said before, Stop Making Sense is one of the best concert performances ever captured on film. Poorly captured, unfortunately.I’ve owned the standard DVD for years, and have viewed it on my Oppo 970 upscaling player at least 50 times. I know (and love) the content very well, warts and all. I eagerly awaited the release on blu-ray to improve the blurry, soft, artifact-laden DVD.Sadly, on my 106″ screen (fed by a Pioneer BPD-51FD blu-ray player though an Epson 1080UB), the video on blu-ray is so similar (poor) to the DVD that I consider it a wasted purchase. What makes it even WORSE than the DVD, is that all the grain, scratches, and film defects are greatly enhanced by the sharpness of blu-ray. When a scratch comes…
