1. Down by Law

Yes, my all-time favorite film, is also the film that has most influenced me. The music (Tom Waits and John Lurie) with the black and white gritty feel of desperation and loneliness, while being a comedy full or heart-felt moments. This film has made me watch all of Jim Jarmusch’s work, as he releases consistently great work!

There it is, these films have really influenced me. You’ll notice that they are almost all at least 20 years old. That is not to say that there haven’t been some amazing films since then, but I wouldn’t classify those as ones that influenced my visual style or sense of art.
