Jim Jarmusch Enters Thiller Film Genre

Political thrillers are a staple at the movies, especially if they involve assassinations or conspiracy plots. Chicagoans will have the opportunity to catch both the film that defined the genre – Z, the 1969 film by Costas Gavras and The Limits of Control, the new film by indie-auteur Jim Jarmusch. Film critic Jonathan Miller has these reviews.

Z opens Friday at the Music Box Theatre
The Limits of Control opens in Chicago Friday, May 8.
