Exactly the right combination of director and artists, at exactly the right time in their creative arc—Demme’s nonpareil concert doc catches up with Talking Heads at the Pantages in L.A., and gives them a document for all times. Try to stay seated during the strobe light breakdown in “Genius of Love,” a moment of purest bliss unparalleled in cinema.
