True. Pissy puts a finger on it. I think Jarmusch has more meat than most of his rivals and in terms of liking someone but adding the dismissive point of being one dimensional is just ridiculous. Sorry I came down hard but Tony talks all high end but rarely serves anything but smack. I bring the knowledge and I look for some constructive feedback. Instead we plug into these same roles. It becomes irksome and I wish there were more like minded thinkers but instead is back to jr high again. I should know better by now... but I keep trying.
Jarmusch's reccurent theme of communication between different cultures and/or cultural backgrounds and the various barriers encountered when the attempt is made stopped paying dividends for me quite a while ago. I stand by my observation that 'Ghost Dog' is insipid both in its shallow treatment of Asian culture (Way of the Samurai indeed!) and for its cartoonish Italian mobsters. And 'Broken Flowers' felt like a screenplay written by a film school student. Especially the ending.
