Five best live concert films
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.
