4K Starts Making Sense

While NZ streaming services TVNZ+, ThreeNow and Neon continue to max out in HD, niche Australian operator is stepping up its 4K content.

This month DocPlay added the 4K re-release of Stop Making Sense to its expanding list of documentary titles in the higher resolution.

“This was a new integration that came into effect towards the end of last year,” a DocPlay spokesperson says of the upgrade.

Stop Making Sense originally was released in 1984. The Talking Heads movie was directed by Jonathan Demme (The Silence of the Lambs) and “by common consensus … is the best concert film ever made,” TV Guide reckons.

It was restored in 4K for its 40th anniversary re-release on IMAX screens after the “untouched (and forgotten) negative” was discovered in “pristine condition” at the MGM film library in Burbank.

The restoration was released internationally on 4K-UHD Blu-ray but not in NZ.

Said Decider of its 4K HBOMax streaming: “Stop Making Sense is all killer, no filler. It’s also looking and sounding better than ever in this exquisite 4K remaster. It’s like a dream walking in broad daylight.”

Other 4K highlights on DocPlay include Lancaster, Chasing Light and 20 Days in Mariupol.
