The Limits of Control

The Limits of Control

Poster for The Limits of Control

The true indie auteur, Jim Jarmusch (Broken Flowers, Down by Law), presents a thriller about a mysterious loner (Isaach De Bankolé, in his fourth collaboration with the director), a stranger, whose activities remain meticulously outside the law. He is in the process of completing a job, yet he trusts no one, and his objectives are not initially divulged. His journey, paradoxically both intently focused and dreamlike, takes him not only across Spain but also through his own consciousness. More

Filmed in Madrid, Seville and Almeria. Cinematography by  acclaimed cinematographer Christopher Doyle (In the Mood for Love, Paranoid Park).

Worst of all, it just feels tired and recycled.

A nondramatic work best appreciated as a pure image-and-sound event.

Jarmusch is making some kind of a point. I think the point is that if you strip a story down to its bare essentials, you will have very little left. I wonder how he pitched this idea to his investors.

A little like guided meditation with suggestions floated, waiting, left untethered. It's up to you to distill meaning -- which will leave some convinced the director is merely self-indulgent, and others deeply satisfied.

Unfortunately, the whole seldom adds up to the sum of its illustrious parts, and Jarmusch's trademark deadpan quirks seem to have gotten lost in the translation.
