JIM JARMUSCH COLLECTION | UK Blu-ray release 6 October

Jim Jarmusch has long been considered a seminal figure in American independent cinema. His films are often noted for their transcendent minimalism and upturning of traditional genres such as the road movie, western, crime-film and detective story.

Together for the first time in the UK on Blu-ray and in fully restored glory are his six first films: PERMANENT VACATION, STRANGER THAN PARADISE, DOWN BY LAW, MYSTERY TRAIN, NIGHT ON EARTH, and DEAD MAN.

PERMANENT VACATION – Jarmusch’s debut – was good enough to attract the attention of Wim Wenders, who offered the film stock necessary for his career-making second feature STRANGER THAN PARADISE. His third film DOWN BY LAW saw three convicts try to escape the bayou in a pitch-perfect black comedy. MYSTERY TRAIN took him to Memphis for a triptych set around a seedy hotel, whilst his portmanteau film NIGHT ON EARTH took him outside of America for the first time, filming in Paris, Rome and Helsinki. Jarmusch then headed home for his cult classic DEAD MAN, an existential anti-western.
