A Conversation with Jim Jarmusch and Jonathan Rosenbaum

Retrospective: Jim Jarmusch

<p>Joining a dryly comic sensibility, a mastery of restrained technique, and a deep sympathy for society's misfits, Ohio native Jim Jarmusch has produced as distinctive a body of films as any other American artist now working. For this retrospective, Jarmusch has paired his own works with those of other directors he admires.</b></p><p>Special thanks to Rachel Dengiz, Exoskeleton, for invaluable help with this series, and to Jonathan Rosenbaum.</p>
