A leading director of the American independent film scene in the '80's.

1. Down By Law - A (Very funny comedy about prisoners on the lam, with gorgeous B&W cinematography courtesy of Robby Muller and the music of John Lurie and Tom Waits)
2. Broken Flowers - B+
3. Ghost Dog: Way of the Samurai - B+ (Jarmusch combines East and West with an African-American samurai (Forrest Whitaker) takes on the mob in this clever film)
4. Night on Earth - B+ (A 5-part film following the stories of cab drivers around the world. Some parts are better than others with the Italian and Finnish segments being my favorite)
5. Mystery Train - B- (A multi-character piece set in a down-and-out hotel in Memphis)
6. The Limits of Control - B-
*7. Ten Minutes Older: The Trumpet (Segment "Int.Trailer Night") - B-
8. Dead Man - C+
9. Stranger Than Paradise - C+
10. Coffee & Cigarettes - C (This multi-part film shot over 17 years is a coffee-sippin' conversation piece. A couple of these I liked, the Alfred Molina-Steve Coogan bit being my favorite, but most were uninteresting with a few being downright mind-numbing)

Bolded films I've seen. Love Dead Man, the rest that I've seen are solid three-star films; agree with Brook on Night on Earth.

I've heard of him, though I don't know why, since I've never seen any of his films.

(stars out of four)
Broken Flowers (2005) **
Coffee and Cigarettes (2003) ***
Ten Minutes Older: The Trumpet (2002) (segment "Int. Trailer Night")
Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai (1999) ***
Year of the Horse (1997)
Dead Man (1995) ****
Night on Earth (1991) ***1/2
Mystery Train (1989)
Down by Law (1986)
Stranger Than Paradise (1983) **
The New World (1982)
Permanent Vacation (1980)

My favorite is Dead Man, for sure, but Night on Earth runs a close second. His other films never quite work for me, though. I've also turned off Stranger Than Paradise; I just didn't get like I got some of his other work.
