Both are wonderful movies about and music performances. I give the edge to The Last Waltz because it not only captures live performances, but it talks about The Band as a cohesive unit.
Stop Making Sense. It’s also Demme’s best film for me. And David Byrne is such a larger than life presence. Also, great music, obviously.
The Last Waltz had great music, not to mention Levon Helm. That man’s voice is AMAZING!
