A true champion of independent cinema who broke Hollywood conventions with his highly inventive narratives, deadpan humour and endearing character studies, Jim Jarmusch is the quintessential cult movie director who has created some of the most original, amusing and sublime landmark movies in underground cinema. Concentrating on the small details of daily life, as opposed to the big events, his observational masterpieces often reflect a nocturnal subculture of hip, colourful language and surreal occurrences. With an instantly recognisable visual style, these are the kind of films that just don’t seem to get made anymore. Mystery Train Jim Jarmusch, the quintessential underground, American filmmaker, delivers a definitive slice of late-eighties cult cinema. Two teenage Japanese tourists, a beautiful Italian widow, three incredibly drunk fugitives, The King Of Rock `N’ Roll and a sudden gunshot all become strangely connected during one night in a seedy Memphis hotel run by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins. Night On Earth Five highly imaginative, entertaining, poignant, insightful and surreal stories humorously unfold within the familiar, confined space of five different taxicabs. Drifting from Los Angeles and New York to Rome, Paris and Helsinki and featuring an international cast of cult performers including Winona Ryder, Beatrice Dalle and Roberto Benigni. Dead Man Johnny Depp is William Blake, a timid and alienated accountant in the old west who by a twist of fate suddenly becomes a wanted outlaw. Visually daring, hallucinatory and totally original, Dead Man has gained a strong cult following since its initial release and remains a stylish, off kilter and abstract revisionist western.
