The Limits of Control

11 Dec 200914 Jan 2010

Jim Jarmusch's latest film may be his boldest and most accomplished cinematic statement to date. Isaach DeBankole plays an unnamed man on an unspecified mission through Spain, receiving cryptic directionsfrom the likes of Tilda Swinton, John Hurt and Gael García Bernalalong the way.

Pleasures abound in the form of visual, verbal and aural details that might be clues to a metaphysical mystery, although they may also be nothing more than winsome distractions. Ace director of photography Christopher Doyle ensures that every composition counts, while the soundtracka combination of Boris, Sunn O))), Schubert, Earth, flamenco and Jarmusch himselfcouldn’t be more skilfully used.
