I’d just kind of waltz on in and I’d say, “Ladies and gentlemen, let’s see who wins a prize for keeping their cool. Simon says, ‘Everybody down on the floor.’ Now, nobody loses their head, then nobody loses their head. Uh… you, sir. Yeah, you do the honors. Take that cash and put it into that bag right there. You’ve got an amazing story to tell your friends. If not, well, you’ve got a tag on your toe. You decide.”
Beloved French director Claire Denis once said, “What I like best is to smoke cigarettes and listen to music. A perfect day for me is a day with coffee, cigarettes, and music, to quote Jim Jarmusch.” And when you think of the iconic New York director, with his signature stunning white coiffure, the beauty of his films exist in the lingering moments of everyday life–like the simple pleasure of a strong cup of coffee and a fresh cigarette. And for over three decades now, Jarmsuch has been making films—as well as writing music and poetry—that live in a world entirely of his creation. Focused on mood and idiosyncratic characters, his movies—from Permanent Vacation to The Limits of Control—tell us intricate stories through fractured vignettes that display his fantastic ear for pairing music with bodies.
