Palm Pictures is proud to present the 25th Anniversary Blu-ray premiere of the groundbreaking Talking Heads concert film - STOP MAKING SENSE - directed by Academy Award® Winner, Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs). STOP MAKING SENSE captures this legendary band in its prime, with their timeless music and unforgettable staging.

The film also made technical history as the first made entirely utilizing digital audio techniques. For Blu-ray, STOP MAKING SENSE has been remastered in high definition from a 35mm interpositive. Two audio options are available: DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and Stereo 2.0.

The Blu-ray disc also contains priceless bonus material: a previously unavailable 1999 press conference featuring a rare off-stage gathering of all four members of Talking Heads, the video short “David Byrne Interviews David Byrne” and two songs not included in the feature film.
