"One of the pinnacles of the 1980s American independent movement, Stranger Than Paradise got its start as a thirty-minute short that Jim Jarmusch shot from leftover stock donated by director Wim Wenders. From that genesis, the $110,000 finished project evolved into the best picture of 1984 as voted by the National Society of Film Critics. Part of a new breed of indie auteurs, Jarmusch quickly ditched the Hollywood system and instead has made a career out of deadpan comedies that display a pastiche of influences as divergent as Japan’s Yasujiro Ozu and TV’s The Honeymooners."
