Staff Pick: Stop Making Sense

Floor staff supervisor Greg Vellante is here with our latest Coolidge Staff Pick, highlighting Jonathan Demme's Stop Making Sense.

"Every time we've shown it there's been people moving in their seats, bobbing up and down, and there's even been people dancing in the aisles" Vellante says. "While it's not quite the same, you can bring this experience into your living room and have a little dance party with yourself, with your significant other, with your family."

Watch the intro below, and then sit down to watch the film, which is streaming on The Criterion Channel and Amazon Prime, and available to rent on most platforms.

You can also watch some of our videos with director Jonathan Demme, who was our seventh Coolidge Award honoree. In the video below, he discusses Stop Making Sense.
