Stop Making Sense
1984

Some might view "best concert film ever" as faint praise ("best sushi restaurant in South Dakota"), but Stop Making Sense transcends the genre. It certainly doesn't try to blow you away with pyrotechnics and lasers. David Byrne arrives onstage with only an acoustic guitar, a boom box, and a big suit; the rest of the band materializes gradually over the next few songs, and then, together, they proceed to burn down the house. Note: if you don't have a DVD player, you can still check out the remastered soundtrack. No excuses.
