There is, at first glance, an ineffable quality to Jim Jarmusch’s movies. But, if you look a little closer, the qualities that make-up his films come to the surface. It’s the way he uses the long shot, to simulate real-time and find the voice of the scene. It’s in his favorite characters, the ones he returns to again and again: the outsider, the loner, the poet. And it’s in the music that, when paired with the director’s affinity for long takes, often gives us enough time to listen to the full breadth of the sounds that inspire and inform his films. Sit back, relax, and enjoy as we delve into what makes a film quintessentially Jarmuschian.
