jim jarmusch talks

leave a comment »

Jim Jarmusch is great to talk to, so direct and simple.  I met him in the little park near Spring Lounge on Spring Street in Soho last summer.  I introduced myself, told him his work had changed my life and we had a short but really pleasant conversation. 

Here he is talking about making some of his great films.  My favorite is Dead Man – a masterpiece.  He describes how he gets Neil Young to do the music for it.  Young recorded in three takes while watching the film.
