Somebody is Waiting in the Hallway

Stop Making Sense
1984. 88 minutes. USA. Directed by Jonathan Demme. Watchdate: 1/26/2011
This is a movie about a giant suit that makes everyone happy and terrified. It's a giant suit that magnifies what is perhaps the craziest sense of rhythm in the Western World (whatever "the Western World" means nowadays). This movie is about sweat and white light and running and everything else people did in the 80s like wearing giant suits to make themselves seem bigger and more important than they actually were. It's great, it should be required viewing.

PS - David Byrne looks startlingly like Cillian Murphy in this movie.
