A good movie

Ever since I saw ‘Dead Man’, I have been a huge fan of Jim Jarmusch and I have been trying to watch all his movies for many years. To be honest, none of his other movies impressed me as much as ‘Dead Man’ but they were all interesting to watch and this flick was definitely not an exception. Basically, 2 years after ‘Mystery Train’, Jarmusch was again coming up with a new anthology of stories but, this time, instead of 3 short-stories, he gave us 5, all taking place during the same night and involving some taxi drivers and passengers in five cities: Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Rome, and Helsinki. Personally, I’m not really a huge fan of this approach because you often get some half-baked sub-plots instead of a fully fledged tale but here it did work though. Eventually, the weakest segment was probably the one involving Winona Ryder has she gave a rather weak and unconvinving performance and my favorite one was the segment involving Béatrice Dalle and Isaach De Bankolé as the characters and their relationship were the most interesting from the whole bunch. To conclude, even though it wasn’t really a masterpiece, it was still a decent watch and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in Jim Jarmusch’s work.
