Robby Müller in Memoriam. Q&A with Jerry Schatzberg.
The late Robby Müller (1940-2018) shot gorgeously realized works for directors ranging from Wim Wenders (Paris, Texas) to Jim Jarmusch (Down by Law) to Lars von Trier (Breaking the Waves) to Barbet Schroeder (Barfly). The rarely screened Honeysuckle Rose, directed by Jerry Schatzberg (Panic in Needle Park), stars Willie Nelson as a touring country music singer, Dyan Cannon as his wife, Slim Pickens as his bantering compadre, and Amy Irving as the woman he falls for on the road. The film received an Academy Award nomination for Best Song for “On the Road Again,” which sums up its rambling spirit.
