Vice: Jim Jarmusch

24 May 2014

Jarmusch compared his own film negatively to 20,000 Days on Earth, Jane Pollard and Iain Forsyth’s stunning Sundance prize–winner about Nick Cave that weaves archival footage and staged scenes with moments of verité documentary. “I watched that and was just ready to give up, man,” he said with a smile, adding that the use of fictionalized scenes got to the truth about Cave with more authority than a traditional documentary would have.
