Trailer Watch: The Limits of Control
After recently watching Mystery Train for the first time, I've concluded that Jim Jarmusch is one of the most interesting filmmakers I've ever followed. He refuses to work outside of the independent market and his films can never be said to cater toward prestige or awards, yet his distinct style is so captivating that it usually attracts brilliant actors. Dead Man, Night On Earth, and Stranger Than Paradise are all brilliant in completely different ways, and that's why Jarmusch is fascinating--he's a chameleon. All that said, The Limits of Control is said to make its big debut at Cannes, and then in limited theaters shortly after. I will die of anticipation.
