It's tempting to think of Jim Jarmusch's high-standing white hair as the mark of a lightning bolt that struck him long ago, leaving him forever an eager receiver for the electricity of inspiration.The film bears none of the usual genre conventions.Mostly, Jarmusch's languorous vampires are vessels for taking a broad look at humanity.Jarmusch, 61, a New York icon and a godfather to the independent cinema of the 1980s and 1990s, might seem a cool, austere figure, often hidden behind shades, but in conversation, he's eager to connect, sweetly sincere in his baritone voice about the things that move him. He strives to watch a film a day, but laments that he's only up to about 50 so far this year. When he arrived in New York in the 1970s to study poetry at Columbia, further awakenings followed: riffling through used vinyl at record stores, rummaging at the Stand bookstore, spending nights at East Village music clubs. He became part of the same New York as Lou Reed, Andy Warhol and Patti Smith Although Jarmusch will always be firmly identified with New York's once-gritty Lower East Side, he now spends much of his time at his remote house in the Catskills.
