Talat's Cinema Notes - Jim Jarmusch's American Art Film "Stranger than Paradise"

As a PhD student in the U.S. in the mid-80s to the early 90s, I was exposed to many Art films . . . among these were movies by Jim Jarmusch.

Jim Jarmusch uses a light touch (unlike Tarantino !!) in telling his stories.

I particularly like Jarmusch's film "Stranger than Paradise" . . . it has a lightly sketched plot, sparse dialogue and the emphasis is on the actors' body language and facial expressions, so that one becomes visually immersed in the story-telling experience. Simply wonderful.
