Stop Making Sense: The Home Game

LAist reader Craig showed up at the Arclight for the Talking Heads documentary Stop Making Sense on the wrong night (Tuesday) only to find it wasn't playing and was furious at us. Don't worry, Craig, even if you had shown up on Wednesday, you wouldn't have gotten in (update: Craig did better than we did and made it in). Tickets for the Jonathan Demme directed concert film have been mostly sold out for the last two weeks. LAist couldn't get in either so we decided to do the next best thing: watch it at home with friends.

The music doc is available from Palm Pictures and features some things you couldn't have seen at the Arclight screening like two extra performances bringing the song total up to 19 and David Byrne interviewing David Byrne (with multiple costume changes) about the tour and the music and the big suit. And, of course, a montage. We love a montage.

We also love to eat.
