Critic Quotes: “The pleasure of the music is overpowering.” – The Guardian

“In its own terms Stop Making Sense is close to perfection.” – New Yorker

“The movie is the finest imaginable version of the Talking Heads’ Speaking in Tongues tour. The concert’s physical staging elements, introduced in pieces and segments, with elegant and wryly suggestive words, create an aura of pristine unease.” – Chicago Tribune
