When it comes to my personal tastes it would seem I should never have watched a Jim Jarmusch film until after seeing his early work. I believe the first film of his I saw was 2003's Coffee and Cigarettes, followed by Broken Flowers and then Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai. After these three films, to say I was unmoved and didn't "get it" would be an understatement. I was at a loss. 2009's The Limits of Control seemed to be the tipping point. I was having such a hard time finding anything interesting in these movies. They had their moments, but overall I was left cold and bewildered. After four films, however, I didn't give up. In 2010, Criterion released Jarmusch's 1989 feature Mystery Train, which I watched and loved. It was at that point I realized I had only begun watching the films from the Jim Jarmusch everyone seemed to praise. »
