We watched Stranger Than Paradise over the weekend and ended up so engrossed in the John Lurie Experience that we nearly spaced on Jim Jarmusch's upcoming birthday on January 22, always a cause for much celebration around our casa.
Jarmusch almost single-handedly created our indie-cinematic scene, and salutations are definitely in order.
Here's one of The Chronicle's several Jim Jarmusch interviews/reviews from days past. Hopefully, it reminds everyone that long before there was insta-cool or ultra-hip online, Jim Jarmusch put a 35mm spell on you that cannot be reversed. Happy Birthday Party, Jim Jarmusch. Coffee and Cigarettes for everyone!
