“Stranger Than Paradise” Screening at Doc Films, October 13

From the Doc Films website: “Eva, freshly arrived from Hungary, walks the derelict streets of New York in search of her cousin Willie. She pauses to turn on her portable tape player, and continues to the sound of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, hysterically repeating “I Put a Spell On You.” With this scene, Director Jim Jarmusch established himself as an innovator of American cool and informed the idiom of independent American cinema with a blend of style and incongruent humor. As Willie’s sidekick (Richard Edson, one-time drummer for Sonic Youth) tags along on a trip across the U.S., Jarmusch weaves nuanced relationships between off-beat characters.” Date: October 13 at 7:00pm. Location: Max Palevsky Cinema, Ida Noyes Hall (1212 East 59th Street).
