Stranger Than Paradise
There’s something timeless about Jim Jarmusch’s 1984 breakthrough feature, and festival favourite, about three misfits who end up on a kind-of road trip from New York to Florida. Deliberately thin on plot—but heavy on atmosphere, thanks in part to the film’s stark black and white composition—Stranger than Paradise is an early example of Jarmusch’s signature deadpan, lo-fi style and love of quirky, malaised characters. It’s an enduring cult classic, which feels wonderfully original even 35 years on.
