By common consensus, Stop Making Sense is the best concert film ever made. Full Review
Andrew O'Hehir
Stop Making Sense is so beautifully choreographed that in some ways it's more like theater than a rock show. [Review of re-release] Full Review
Dave Kehr
Chicago Reader
It's 88 minutes of solid, inventive music, filmed in a straightforward manner that neither deifies the performers nor encourages an illusory intimacy, but presents the musicians simply as people doing their job and enjoying it. Full Review
Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
Has there ever been a live concert film as vibrant or as brilliantly realized? I don't think so. [Review of re-release] Full Review
Janet Maslin
The New York Times
Mr. Demme has captured both the look and the spirit of this live performance with a daring and precision that match the group's own. Full Review
