Love him or hate him, Jim Jarmusch is one of the most fiercely individual filmmakers of his time. Whether it’s turned to New York slackers or the zombie apocalypse, his understated punk rock gaze is instantly recognizable. As he skips between genres without a care in the world, his films are always leisurely, thoughtful, and gleefully aware of their own hipness.
The other common denominator in his eclectic filmography is his collaborators. The director has assembled a team of offbeat musicians, serious actors, and acclaimed crew members that keep coming back to his projects.
With the release of “The Dead Don’t Die,” we looked back at Jarmusch’s past collaborators who returned for the film.
