A review of "Limits of Control (Ws Sub Ac3 Dol)"

The best films are like dreams you’re never sure you really had.

Jim Jarmusch creates a dreamy, beautiful and understated character study in The Limits of Control. While it is thin on plot, it’s heavy on beautiful and meditative imagery. Images and dialogue are repeated and modified in a musical way. The core of the film is Isaach de BankolĂ© who barely says anything and quite wonderful to watch. I really enjoyed the film for the look and the casual attitude and the clever film allusions which were almost done in a Godardian style. If you’re in the right mood it will be delightful to coast along on the journey.
