The Milwaukee Film Festival's annual screening/dance party/best concert film ever made/unforgettable filmgoing experience returns for yet another year! The late, great Jonathan Demme combined forces with David Byrne and the Talking Heads to make cinematic history, the rare concert picture that makes you feel like you're in attendance, experiencing the performance for the first time. From the stripped down "Psycho Killer" opener all the way to its joyous "Crosseyed and Painless" finale, Stop Making Sense is certain to burn down THE house yet again.
