At home, Adam and Eve spin old r&b and country records. The word "download," as uttered by the impish Ava, is a dirty one. But in his sly way, Jarmusch seems to be reminding us that in the days before vinyl records were fetish objects, they were . . . fetish objects. Everything and everyone old — Byron, Tesla, Keats — is always on the cusp of being new to someone. Even Detroit may someday rise from the grave, on the strength of love and elbow grease. The title of Jarmusch's movie has a double meaning: Love — of art, of plants and animals, of people — is a form of survival. It's only when you lose the hang of it that you're doomed.
