Dead Man

How did I see so many other films by Jim Jarmusch before I even heard of Dead Man? It is his best film. It brings together so many disparate elements perfectly. The cast is wonderful, Johnny Depp, Robert Mitchum, Iggy Pop. The film is a beautiful high contrast black and white. The setting of the American West is very rough, I can’t remember another western showing a horse urinating or whores working in the alleyways. The most impressive part of the film is its deep respect for Native American culture. Its not only central to the story, but also native ideas are used visually. The best example being warriors appearing around William Blake, then disappearing back into woodland animals. The only fault is the title sequence, which works, but isn’t to the same level of perfection as the rest of the film. The rest of the film being absolutely perfect.
