A good movie

Ever since I have seen 'Dead Man' when it was released, I have always been a fan of Jim Jarmusch. To be honest, I didn't care much about his latest work but I still try to catch his movies when I get the chance. Anyway, it took me many years to finally see his directing debut but I'm glad I managed to see it. He made it back in 1980 when he was still a student at a film school with a 12.000 dollar... read more

(MU) There's already Jarmusch's ideas, characters and style; but lacks the humour, the angel, of later films. Kaurismakian but short on humour...

"April 9th Directed by: Jim Jarmusch The most Jarmusch Jarmusch in which a guy wanders. That's it. I feel like it takes real skill and extreme creativity to make a film that has no plot, or at least a good one. I never once found it dull due to nary a moment wasted on a boring shot. It's an amazing video journal of New York City, and in this context the ending is especially poignant. This is Jarmusch at his rawest, I always seem to like most filmmaker's early stuff and this is no exception. I t"

A Complete Review of Jim Jarmusch's work (16 movies items)

" Cast : John Lurie What was it about? A young man wanders New York City searching for some meaning in life and encounters many idiosyncratic characters. My two cents: It took me many years to finally see this directing debut but I'm glad I managed to see it. Jarmusch made it back in 1980 when he was still a student at a film school with a 12.000 dollar shoestring budget from a misused scholarship. Basically, it was a typical Jarmusch effort, with very little action, very little character de"
