Jonathan Demme

Veering away from feature films like Melvin And Howard, director Jonathan Demme was set to release his Talking Heads concert movie Stop Making Sense when he spoke to NOW’s John Harkness about the real David Byrne and how Demme made decisions about which songs to include.

Though he swore he’d never make another music doc and went back to making features (he won best picture and director Oscars for The Silence Of The Lambs in 92), he did eventually make videos for Bruce Springsteen and the Pretenders and completed not one, but three documentaries about Neil Young, including 2011’s Neil Young Journeys.
