Drawing inspiration from such diverse sources as Japanese kabuki dance-drama, and the overtly stylised lighting of New York stage practitioner Robert Wilson, Talking Heads frontman David Byrne designed his group’s 1983 touring show as an unabashedly theatrical, borderline Brechtian experience. Jonathan Demme introduced his own distinct cinematic sensibility when directing the filmed version (shot over three nights at Hollywood’s Pantages Theater), and the wondrous widescreen result is the greatest music movies of all time.
