The audience is hardly seen until the end of the movie. The only shot comes between "Life During Wartime" and "Making Flippy Floppy".
David Byrne collaborated with Jonathan Demme on Demme's "Something Wild", as well as the score of "Married To The Mob".
The band split in the early 90s, but reunited in 2002 for another excellent performance at their induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

The Talking Heads's song "This Must Be The Place" was also used in the 2004 IMAX masterpiece "Space Station". In it, Tom Cruise (who unfortunately is never seen) narrarates several historic flights from both the United States and Russian Republic which contributed to the International Space Station's construction, and eventual habitation. The classic Heads tune plays during the second crew's arrival and repair sequence. As of January 2007, the film is playing at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, but a 2-D version is currently available on DVD.

During the actual concert, the band took a short break here and there and David Byrne would tell the crowd "We are taking a short break". Since there is no actual break in the film, Demme overdubbed Byrne asking "Does anybody have any questions?"

The film's title STOP MAKING SENSE is a repeated phrase in the third-act number "Girlfriend Is Better". A track from the "Speaking In Tongues" album (their latest at the time), part of the final chorus's lyrics go:

'As we get older and stop making sense
You won't find her waiting long
Stop making sense, stop making sense, stop making sense, making sense..."
