JIM JARMUSCH(1953- ), American"Jarmusch's elliptical, dedramatised, episodic narrative style is symptomatic of his restlessly experimental interest in the method and structure of cinematic storytelling. Crucially, however, this interest in formalism - which makes him unlikely to ever join the Hollywood mainstream - is balanced by subtle wit, the warmth he clearly feels for his characters and a bemused, intelligent interest in the unfamiliar backroads of American life, so that he remains one of the most accessible, original and influential of that country's independent film-makers."
- Geoff Andrew, The Director's Vision
"It is the time between jump cuts that are the basis for many of Jarmusch's films. He is interested in documenting the mundane events that most people take for granted and shows that they too are filled with fascinating moments. His films are populated by characters who seem to have no real direction in life, who just happen to stumble into adventure."
