Jim Jarmusch

The Leopard has been having a home movie festival lately of films of Jim Jarmusch! His first theatrical film “Stranger Than Paradise” is the one that catapulted him as a major new indie talent was way back in 1984, but still holds up well today. Since then, he’s been fairly consistent with each successive film and incredibly original, each beautifully made and undeniably the work of a singular artist. Favorites: Paradise, Down By Law (1984), Night On Earth (1991), Dead Man (1995), Ghost Dog : The Way Of the Samurai (1991), Limits of Control (2009) and Only Lovers Left Alive (2013). Go check out his work. Great stuff.
