Blu-Ray Review: Only Daring Should Apply to ‘Enter the Void’

DVD Review: ‘The Limits of Control’ Sinks Under Weight of Pretension

CHICAGO – Jim Jarmusch’s latest film experiment “The Limits of Control” is another example of a once-intriguing filmmaker becoming bogged down by his own self-aware style, delivering easily the worst film of one of the most important careers in the history of independent film. Jarmusch changed indie cinema in the ’80s. Now, he doesn’t even seem interested in his own films.
