On Saturday I went along to the GFT for a screening of Jim Jarmusch's film Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai. I've always loved this film. It's so perfectly made. Every beat is just right. It's menacing, hilarious, thoughtful and thought provoking.
This screening was part of Triptych and featured an intorduction and Q & A from the composer of the film's score, Wu-Tang Clan mainman RZA. His chat was really interesting. He discussed how he came to work on the film. (He and Jarmusch smoked weed together.) He talked about working with Tarantino on Kill Bill, how he feels the Wu-Tang are cheating their audience when all the group don't show up for a gig and many other aspects of his musical, production, business and film careers. He talked intelligently and openly about his life and career. He's also, as he pointed out "Wu-Tang forever."
