one of my favourite films and i am gagging to see it on the big screen… i just discovered this strangest little tv episode called ‘fishing with john’, where john lurie takes some of his film and music mates fishing. with jim jarmush he goes for sharks up on the east coast, it’s very weird but certainly worth the watch, if only for oddities’ sake (jarmush’s face turns from worried to miserable as their mission proceeds). it also features lurie and tom waits in jamaica, and with dennis hopper he goes to thailand where the two fall out spectacularly. john directs these tv episodes, and it’s not his strongest point admittedly, but strange and wonderful all the same. his paintings are worth a look, too. kind of similar to harmony korine’s written sketches, very quirky.
