Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai

Well, this is a deeply strange film as only Jim Jarmusch could do I suppose. In the end it turns out to be a more interesting experiment than a successful film. But Forest Whitaker is fantastic in the central performance. Alternately commanding, intimidating and soothing, melancholic, his Ghost Dog is as contradictory as the film that surrounds him. Born into the ghetto of an undisclosed city whil... read more

Back in 1995, I saw ‘Dead Man’ in the movie theater and I was completely blown away by the whole thing. Indeed, I never saw anything similar before, it was indeed the first movie directed by Jim Jarmusch that I had the pleasure to see and it became instantly one of my all-time favorites. So, when Jarmusch finally came up with a new directing effort 4 long years later, of course, I got really e... read more

Che dire, un film che per me è diventato lentamente ma con certezza un mito. Non ricordo neanche come ho avuto il Dvd originale, acquistato forse perchè a buon prezzo, visto che questo film non lo conoscevo. E forse grazie ai momenti in cui l'ho visto, adesso per me questo capolavoro ha un'aurea magica, rilassante, very cool. Che dire della colonna sonora, mi sono dovuto procurare anche quella v... read more

A Complete Review of Jim Jarmusch's work (14 movies items)

" Cast : Forest Whitaker, Isaach De Bankolé, RZA What was it about? An African American mafia hit man who models himself after the samurai of old finds himself targeted for death by the mob. My two cents: Back in 1995, I saw ‘Dead Man’ in the movie theater and I was completely blown away by the whole thing. So, when Jarmusch finally came up with a new directing effort 4 long years later, of course, I got really excited by the damned thing and I saw it as well in the movie theater when i"

A very good movie

“Back in 1995, I saw ‘Dead Man’ in the movie theater and I was completely blown away by the whole thing. Indeed, I never saw anything similar before, it was indeed the first movie directed by Jim Jarmusch that I had the pleasure to see and it became instantly one of my all-time favorites. So, when Jarmusch finally came up with a new directing effort 4 long years later, of course, I got really excited by the damned thing and I saw it as well in the movie theater when it was released. Eventually, even though it wasn’t a complete home-run like ‘Dead Man’ was, it was still a fascinating feature. What impressed me the most is how completely different it was from his previous directing effort. What they did have in common though is that those 2 movies both had an amazing soundtrack and,” read more
