“To me, acting is a calling, a way of life more than a career...My life feeds my art, and my art feeds my life. I didn’t want the destiny of a regular girl.” — The inimitable Jeanne Moreau, born on this day in 1928 💞

"I’m drawn to stories of people whose lives illuminate larger fissures & issues of justice & race & the American dream, and I love trying to get at those issues, not by tackling them as big issues, but through stories, through people’s lives.”— Steve James

Dennis Lim calls MYSTERY TRAIN, Jarmusch’s ode to Memphis & the ghosts of Americana, “a puzzle movie as humanist manifesto. Not just attuned to the formal pleasures of synchronicity and repetition, it’s founded on the most basic facts of human commonality and difference..."

"Jarmusch exhibits free-floating affinities to filmmakers as disparate as Ron Rice & Carl Dreyer as well, but STRANGER THAN PARADISE is far more than the sum of its influences...It’s never less than wholly and confidently itself."
