Five best live concert films

Categories: Lists

1. Stop Making Sense (The Talking Heads)
Cool yet weird, populous yet arty, hopelessly white yet terribly funky, the Talking Heads' Stop Making Sense set the tone for how a band could have a large-scale ambition for their live-concert without falling into the traps of bloated commercialism and self-important showboating. Directed by Ted Demme (Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia), the film begins with David Byrne performing solo with a guitar and boombox, then slowly, piece by piece, being joined by the rest of his band with each new song, culminating in a pop-art stage set and Byrne dancing about in a suit several sizes too large for him.

The Doors: Live at the Hollywood Bowl, 8:30 p.m. Friday, December 21, The Boedecker Theater, 2590 Walnut Street, Boulder Colorado, $10, 303-440-7826.
