No vale nada

The entry entitled “Ghost Dog” below may seem like a poem, but it’s actually a review of Jim Jarmusch’s latest film, The Limits of Control, another in a series of beautiful, empty pieces by the auteur signifying nothing. Of course, that is the whole point. The message isn’t conveyed by the film, it is embedded in it. Luckily, Jarmusch has a cult following (I number myself among them), otherwise, he would have to fall back on his music. So, it only seemed natural to write my review of his elliptic, repetitive film as a garbled poem.
