    “insidious”, “fraudulent”, “nuclear”: surprised a Jarmusch movie provoked such a strong reaction! I don’t think of his films as being at all realistic (but then I’ve only see Ghost Dog, Dead Man & Stranger Than Paradise), but I also don’t find contentment all that implausible. I recently learned that I make less than a bus driver in my city (and I’m nearly a decade into my career), I’m sure as hell not married to Golshifteh Farahani, and I’m content. It appears to be largely a matter of disposition, which varies.

    I didn’t think we were supposed to regard John Lurie’s character as cool in Stranger Than Paradise. He’s a loser, and rather unpleasant.
