| Archetypal American “independent” film auteur. His films are hip, smart, slow, bittersweet, and always interesting (too arty and shallow for some).
Favorite movies list
Down by law (1986)
(with Tom Waits, Roberto Benigni)
Part nightmare and part fairy tale; an italian tourist (Roberto Benigni!) and 2 other haples men end up in prison, then escape… Slow and hilarious.
Dead Man (1995)
“Western”; a young man going west (both metaphorically and literally)!
Night on Earth (1991)
A collection of five stories involving cab drivers in five different cities: Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Rome, Helsinki.
