The Limits of Control, Blu-ray BluRay


Jim Jarmusch directs this freeform existentialist musing on life and art.

A mysterious loner and outlaw (Isaach De Bankole) makes his meandering journey through the varied landscapes of southern Spain, subsisting solely on double espressos and the regular practice of T'ai Chi.

Along the way he is handed small pieces of paper contained in matchboxes, each one symbolising a mode of expression - music, film, art, sex, drugs - each of which he absorbs but does not outwardly react to.

John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Gael Garcia Bernal and Bill Murray are among the actors who appear in cameo roles.
