  1. Sadly I haven’t seen many movies from this selection, obviously I remember Down by Law from Moviedrome and I did catch Dead man a few years ago and loved it. i didn’t know much about Neil Young, Jim Jarmusch or Blake’s poetry then. this post makes me want to watch it again.

  2. As you can see from the above, Dead Man is my number one favorite of all of his films. Robby Mueller’s black and white cinematography and Neil Young’s music score are just phenomenal. Truly one of the great films of the 1990’s. Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂

  3. I love Jarmusch, but he’s a bit hit and miss. Fortunately the hits are so good.

    Down By Law is still my favourite, then after that Dead Man, Stranger Than Paradise and Paterson equal second. Then probably Ghost Dog, Mystery Train and Night on Earth.

    I couldn’t really connect with Only Lovers Left Alive for some reason (not a big vampire fan). Permanent Vacation is the only real stinker I’ve seen. Cheers.

  4. As you can see, Dead Man is still my number one favorite. Speaking of which, who can forget Neil Young’s poetic music score? I mean those guitar sounds just fit the dreamlike quality of the film. Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂

  5. Adrien Brody is not in Paterson. The lead actor in that film is Adam Driver, but it is a great film, I can guarantee you that 🙂 Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂

    P.S. I do agree with you on Adrien Brody though 🙂

  6. is that Driver? I picked it up but stop me if you have heard this before,I have it on my “too watch” stack…..Driver is improving as an actor. He was good in “Midnight Special”,
