Best ever!
Let me put this in perspective as to how good "Making Movies" is. In 1985, I owned about 1000 assorted Lp's, cassettes and 8-tracks. I got my first CD player and had to decide where to start re-creating my collection. I bought two CD's that day as my first step into the world of compact discs. This masterpiece was one of them. Don't miss 'Skateaway' and 'Tunnel of Love'. 'Romeo and Juliet' is beyond description in its angst and beauty. BUY THIS! The other CD, you ask? Pink Floyd "Animals." Buy it too!

Making Movies is Monumental.
Best album ever by DS. Best playing ever by MK, Pick Withers and John Isley [the ending to Tunnel Of Love is simply breath taking]. Best song writing ever by MK along with an excellent wall of sound production that never sounds dated or cliched. If you don't believe me then check out the other reviews for this seminal 80's rock classic.

Let's not mince words...this is essential for any collection
For once an album that accomplished the intended ambition. The wide screen cinematic theme was captured in sound with it's big roomy production, and detailed lyrical themes that read like movie scripts detailing keen-eyed observational character narrative. Mark Knopfler has never been this focused and thankfully the album was massively popular, but overshadowed by the dumbed down "Brothers in arms" album.

absolutely the best Dire Straits ever
This Cd is probably the best Dire Straits CD ever released. The songs and the music is from the best period of Dire Straits period. Romeo and Juliet is my favourite song of all songs ever. i can't fin any bad song or music on this album. my three favourite D. S: Making Movies, Alchemy, On the Night + encore CD. My best recommandation.

a great disc from beginning to end
This was, I think, the first real indication that Dire Straits would be a musical force in the 80s and beyond. "Dire Straits" and Communique were both good records but Making Movies stepped it up a notch. I would rank it right up there with Brothers in Arms and only slightly below On Every Street on my list of favorite D.S. discs. Standout tracks include Tunnel of Love, Expresso Love, and Solid Rock but there really isn't a bad song on the entire disc.
