Stranger Than Paradise

Among the First True "Indie" Films

Stranger Than Paradise is a film that attempts to present the people of America at a particular time in history. Like other indie directors to follow, Jarmusch does not focus so on plot so much as intense characterization of a group of lazy, underachieving slackers. He allows us to follow them on their aimless journey across America as they continue to be thwarted by their own flaws from finding paradise. Many critics of this film cite that it is "boring" and "has no plot". There is a bit of validity to both of those statements as the first half hour of the film is quite poorly paced. However, what must be recognized is that the plot is rather unnecessary for the film, as this is not a movie about the events that happen, but rather …

I actually found the writing of 'Fargo' to be slightly turgid and uneven, while I found the writing of 'Burn After Reading' to be the very essence of brilliant script composition. The latter film also has a deluge of witty one-liners that the former seems to lack, even in small doses. With that said, though, I should note that my sense of humour is almost terminally misanthropic, and I find almost any type of comedic work that tries to affirm the alleged beauty of the human condition to be …

Coen Bros (Best to Worst) comment

I think 'Burn After Reading' is the Coen Brothers best film, actually. 'Fargo' is good, but a bit too sentimental for my tastes.

Fincher (Best to Worst) comment

It's so satisfying to see 'Se7en' at the top of this Jeremy. Even though I'm not very well-versed in Fincher, I don't understand why it's a somewhat unanimous decision by fans and critics that both Fight Club and Social Network top Se7en.
