Jarmusch returns to his "early, funny" black-and-white roots with this inspired assemblage of absurdist vignettes, shot over the course of two decades.

Things keep moving via Jarmusch's eccentric mélange of a cast including Tom Waits, Steve Buscemi, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Iggy Pop, The White Stripes, Wu-Tang Clan, and many others. |Read More
