“We Were Street Punks…”

Today’s Washington Post features an interview with Jim Jarmusch, whose Broken Flowers will be hitting theaters in the next few days. Word on the street is that Jarmusch’s latest is a very good film, so I’m looking forward to it.

The article focuses on Jarmusch’s production process, noting that for his films he always retains full creative control. Jarmusch also discusses his excitement at winning the Camera d’Or, the award for best first feature, at the Cannes Film Festival in 1984 for Stranger Than Paradise.

Also, folks who live in or around Washington, DC, might be interested to know that the AFI Silver Theater in Silver Spring is featuring a Jarmusch retrospective this month in celebration of the release of Flowers.

    There’s a lengthy New York Times Magazine story on him as well, in case you hadn’t seen it.

    Thanks for the link. I noticed the article this morning but somehow forgot to read it.
