Night on Earth
DIRECTOR: JIM JARMUSCH
CAST: GENA ROWLANDS, WINONA RYDER, ARMIN MUELLER-STAHL, ROSIE PEREZ, ISAACH DE BANKOLé, BéATRICE DALLE
Jarmusch’s career-long fascination with at-home-in-the-world wanderers finds its perfect expression in this anthology piece, set simultaneously in five different cabs in five different cities around the world. In Los Angeles casting agent Gena Rowlands cross-examines driver Winona Ryder, Isaach De Bankolé drives a mysterious young blind woman through Paris, and the backseat operates everywhere as an analyst’s sofa, loneliness and urban anomie proving to know no national bounds. “Mr. Jarmusch again demonstrates his mastery of comedy of the oblique.”—The New York Times
