Study up at Golden Age's mini-retrospective for the American indie film legend.
The work of one of the masters of American indie filmmaking is on its way to the Golden Age Cinema and Bar. From Wednesday, February 15, the Surry Hills picture house will shine a spotlight on the endlessly inventive filmography of the one and only Jim Jarmusch.
The mini-retrospective begins with a special Film Club presentation of Down by Law, Jarmusch's critically acclaimed 1986 black comedy about a trio of cons, played by John Laurie, Roberto Benigni and music legend Tom Waits, on the run from the authorities through the Louisiana Swamp. Golden Age will also screen his followup, 1989's Mystery Train, an anthology film set in Memphis, Tennessee.
Rounding out the program are Jarmusch's two most recent films: the good-natured Paterson starring Adam Driver, as well as his adoring rock doc Gimme Danger about The Stooges and Iggy Pop.
