Jonathan Demme's no-frills filming of rock group Talking Heads in concert (actually, three concerts, but made to look like one).

A concert movie that has acquired a cult status. I enjoyed it, but then I'm an admirer of the group. Whether Talking Heads can sustain an uncommitted audience's interest for 88 minutes is another matter.
