Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I never talk to actors as a group. Only one at a time. I talk to them about being their characters. Never, ever, about the meaning of the scene. I don't want the actors overladen with research, so they grow stale. See more »

Trivia:

Has lived with his girlfriend, filmmaker Sara Driver, for 20 years. [2005] See more »

Trademark:

None of Jarmusch's films have big orchestral scores. Instead, the music in his movies is produced by modern musicians like Tom Waits (Night on Earth), John Lurie (Mystery Train), Neil Young (Dead Man), RZA (Ghost Dog) and his own band Sqürl (Only Lovers Left Alive). See more »
