Editorial Reviews

Winner of the Camera d'Or for Best First Feature at the 1984 Cannes Film Festival, Jim Jarmusch's "bracingly original avant-garde black comedy" not only launched his career but also earned him recognition from critics as one of today's more inventive and creative filmmakers. Stranger than Paradise, a story of self-discovery for the slacker generation, is one of the most "original, wonderfully oddball, independent American films" and "extremely entertaining to watch." Lounge Lizard musician John Lurie stars as Willie, a disenchanted New Yorker who, along with his best friend Eddie (Richard Edson) and cousin Eva (Eszter Balint), decides it's time to leave behind their boring lives in search of "paradise." But as their unforgettable road trip to Florida unfolds, they find that amidst the sunshine, blue skies and palm trees, their pursuit of happiness is constantly road-blocked by the very thing they can't run away from...themselves.
