15. The Limits of Control – Jim Jarmusch (2009)

Repeat Viewing.

As an unashamed Jarmusch lover I approached this film with unadulterated excitement back when I first viewed it in June 09. I enjoyed the movie, but ultimately felt confused by what I had seen. Upon closer inspection and a second viewing I can now see the film for what it should be recognized as; a masterpiece. With no expectations this time around I allowed myself to revel in the mastery Jarmusch and Doyle weave with their photography and visuals. To explain the film seeks only to distract oneself from the greater picture, this is Jarmusch beyond popcorn cinema, this is art.
