#059: (Pt. 1) Stranger Than Paradise / Paterson

Inspired by Jim Jarmusch’s new PATERSON, we take a trip through Jarmuschland, way back to the director’s second and breakthrough feature, STRANGER THAN PARADISE. We talk over the ways in which STRANGER THAN PARADISE helped redefine American independent filmmaking, through its bare-bones style, dry humor, memorable characters, and glimpses of underexplored parts of the country. Plus, some feedback on LA LA LAND and UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG, inspired by our last episodes.

Please share your comments, thoughts, and questions about STRANGER THAN PARADISE, PATERSON, or both by sending an email to , or leaving a short voicemail at (773) 234-9730.
