Saw this on IMAX on Monday with the (horribly awkward) live stream Q&A to follow. I've seen this movie over 10 times and I'm only somewhat of a Talking Heads fan. I just think it's a complete masterpiece and one of the best films ever made. The restoration is gorgeous and the sound design is out of this world... especially in IMAX. I've seen the movie a LOT and I immediately noticed how significant the restoration is.

Unfortunately, technical difficulties at our IMAX chopped off the first 15-20 minutes so we missed the whole building-of-the-set sequence.

But still - 10/10!

On HTF I asked a question of a knowledgable poster regarding the set list for the film. Here is my question and the answer I received.

Quote
Q: I assume there was no attempt to reintegrate the footage of "Cities" and "Big Business/ I Zimbra", and that that decision was taken because the elements for those were incompatible with the finished film?

A: Obviously not part of the original negative. Some people feel that these out-takes should have been reintegrated back into the restored movie. However, I've always seen them on home video as included bonus materials since VHS days and I think it's fine they were left out. They kind of disrupt the momentum of the movie.

Not all songs from the show were featured in the film. For example, at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center on August 3, 1983 and at Berkeley on September 2, 1983, Talking Heads performed the following songs:

Set 1
Psycho Killer
Heaven
Thank You For Sending Me An Angel
Love → Building On Fire (Love Goes To Building On Fire)
The Book I Read
Slippery People
Cities
Big Blue Plymouth (Eyes Wide Open)
Burning Down The House
Life During Wartime

Set 2
Making Flippy Floppy
Swamp
What A Day That Was
This Must be the Place (Na?ve Melody)
Once In A Lifetime
Big Business / I Zimbra
Houses In Motion
Genius Of Love (as Tom Tom Club)
Girlfriend Is Better
Take Me To The River
Crosseyed And Painless

In addition, "Pull Up The Roots" was performed at the University Of Vermont on October 1, 1983.

Some performances in the film were shortened in the editing stage. The "Cities" out-take removes one complete verse and chorus.

Now we can all watch the (horribly awkward) Q&A:

It's interesting to compare this with what they said in 1999 (after the previous sound restoration):

Here's one more (hey, Roy, PTA!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWX5AentbSM
