Forest Whitaker article at The Reeler


Here's what Ghost Dog star Forest Whitaker had to say about Jarmusch in the article: "I really liked working on [Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai]. It was different because it started different. Jim had an idea, and he would meet with me, and we would just talk for hours and hours about myth or about codes or about whatever. And we would do that a few times. Then he went away and wrote the script, came back and gave it to me. In his way, he felt it represented a part of me. That character to him is a symbolized way of how he perceived me." Read the whole article here. More Jarmusch posts coming all this week, as this is the JJ blog-a-thon week. And here is the IMDB page for Ghost Dog.

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.
