Everything Jim does touches me in a unique way,that archetypical Jarmuschesque way. His grasp of pace alone is ridiculous,totally organic without being natural.

Stellar follow-up to the NYC Dwtn show!

Jim Jarmusch immortalized the dreary winters of my hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, in his great "Stranger Than Paradise," and I can never hear "I Put a Spell on You" without thinking of it.

Jim Jarmusch and Steve Earle/Townes Van Zandt on one show--I am in heaven!

Much respect to Jim Jarmusch, his directing skills, and his understanding of how music and sound meshes with cinema.

Question: Do you feel a mood or a tone with certain while you are working on film projects and then piece together a soundtrack/score, or does the music come before the rest of the storytelling techniques?

Dead Man has possibly the most powerful and well-suited score I've heard in any film, ever. I go back and listen to it independently of the movie often.
