Jozef Van Wissem and Jim Jarmusch Continue their Unlikely Collaboration with the Dark, Droning 'An Attempt to Draw Aside the Veil'

None Famed independent film director Jim Jarmusch never really gained notoriety for his musical exploits, and Dutch experimental lute player Jozef Van Wissem isn't exactly a household name, so it may not be a surprise that a musical collaboration between the two artists would fly under the radar.But the truth is, they've worked together frequently over the past few years. Beginning with a chance meeting in New York City in 2006, Jarmusch and Van Wissem have since collaborated on three studio al...

Akira Kurosawa’s 100 Favorite Movies

In movies like Seven Samurai and High and Low, director Akira Kurosawa took the cinematic language of Hollywood and improved on it, creating a vigorous, muscular method of visual storytelling that became a stylistic playbook for the likes of Martin Scorsese, George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola. In movies like Ikiru, The Bad Sleep Well and The Lower Depths, Kurosawa relentlessly struggled to find the rays of light among the shadows of the human soul. This philosophical urgency combined...

How Jim Jarmusch Gets Creative Ideas from William S. Burroughs’ Cut-Up Method and Brian Eno’s Oblique Strategies

As the nameless assassin protagonist of Jim Jarmusch's The Limits of Control makes his way through Spain, he meets several different, similarly mysterious figures, each time at a different café. Each time he orders two espressos — not a double espresso, but two espressos in separate cups. Each time his contact arrives and asks, in Spanish, whether he speaks Spanish, to which he responds that he doesn't. Each conversation that follows ends with an exchange of matchboxes, and each one the assassi...

Album Review: Dylan Carlson, “Conquistador”

I know it’s utterly blasphemous to suggest in underground circles, but my first point of entry when listening to Dylan Carlson’s new “Conquistador,” the title track to a series of brain-melting epics for distorted guitar, was not Herzog’s Aguirre but Neil Young. Not the commercial Young, mind you, or he of the Crosby, Stills & Nash association, but the Young of Jim Jarmusch’s Dead Man. On the Dead Man score, Young eschewed melody and hooks for an exploration of a distorted guitar’s textures, und...

'Foxtrot' Is a 'Catch-22' for Our Time

There's no rule that filmmakers need to have served in the military to make movies about war. Some of the greatest war movies were by directors who never spent a minute in basic (Coppola, Malick). Still, a little knowledge of the terrain helps. A filmmaker who has spent time hugging a rifle on watch understands things the civilian never can, no matter how much research they might do. With a director like Samuel Maoz, who was a tank gunner in the Israeli army and has only made two movies i...

Spinning Discs: For Movie Lovers

Valentine’s Day is here, so it’s a good time to look at some movies I swooned for last year, now that they’re on home video. (Does anyone even use that term anymore? Sounds antiquated, but then again, I’ve been writing on this topic since the 80s, so I am, too.) Speaking of the 80s: John Hughes meets James L. Brooks in The Edge of Seventeen, which updates the former’s teen movie template with the latter’s world-wise, world-weary attitude. (He co-produced.) Following in the the estimable footstep...

Jim Jarmusch's Paterson: Poetry for the New Year

The quiet charm of Jim Jarmusch's Paterson, his latest movie, about a poet evoking the time and place of predecessor wordsmiths William Carlos Williams and Allen Ginsberg, impresses with vitality, a life force. So much, that two-time Academy Award nominee for Best Actress, Sylvia Miles, quipped, she paid her academy dues just to nominate this work for a Best Picture Oscar: "It's the best film I've ever seen on a creative person." In a season of noisier films, will academy voters notice this gent...

Jim Jarmusch Lists His Favorite Poets: Dante, William Carlos Williams, Arthur Rimbaud, John Ashbery & More

Wikimedia Commons photo by Chrysoula Artemis When it comes to American indie director Jim Jarmusch, we tend to think right away of the importance of music in his films, what with his collaborations with Neil Young, Tom Waits, and Iggy Pop. (Jarmusch is himself a musician who has released two studio albums and three EPs under the moniker Sqürl.) But Jarmusch’s most recent film, Paterson, is an ode to poetry, drawn from his own love of New York School poets like Frank O’Hara and John Ashbery. Set...

Review: ‘Star Wars’ Villain Adam Driver Will Warm Your Heart in Jim Jarmusch’s ‘Paterson’

Note: With Paterson in limited release starting today, we’re re-running our review from the New York Film Festival. In the past five years, Adam Driver has gone from total obscurity to total ubiquity. Girls was the show that launched him to fame, but his work since then has proven that his breakout role was no fluke. There’s a reason he’s being courted by everyone from the blockbuster magicians at Disney (for Star Wars: The Force Awakens) to top-level directors like Noah Baumbach, the Coens, an...

"It is a tragedy for the world." Jarmusch was here at the festival to speak about his two recently released films, Gimmee Shelter and Paterson, both of which celebrate the power of the individual to choose the way he lives his life.

New York Poet Ron Padgett Wows Audience at the Lisbon & Estoril Film Festival

It was an exceptional moment to hear the renowned New York poet Ron Padgett read his poems to an eager audience at the Lisbon & Estoril Film Festival. The poet gripped his audience with his clear dramatic delivery and streak of self-effacing humor. "Don't worry," he quipped to us, indicating the pages of his poetry on the podium. "I won't be reading too many!" Padgett's are the kind of poems that put one in a good mood: each is based in wonder about existence, which always returns to th...

BIRMINGHAM, Mich.
