Jim Jarmusch is undoubtedly one of the most iconic and unique directors in the world of cinema. His own personal style and vision is very easily noticed even in this, his first feature-film.
While some directors start off with an absolute classic for a debut (Citizen Kane, Reservoir Dogs and 12 Angry Men for example), Jarmusch's debut is easily his worst movie.
Permanent Vacation is basically plot-less and the strange characters that inhabit it are quite unremarkable if I'm being honest. Jarmusch sure knows how to nail the tone in each of his movies, but the stories themselves need a lot of work.
I have 3/4 more of his features to watch, but so far, only Paterson has my full seal of approval.
