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

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 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

Movies I Watched in February 2021 (49 movies items)

" Date: 2/1/2021 Viewed: Criterion Channel Re-Watch Note: February is Black History Month, and I felt like this movie was the perfect movie to start the month with. Unlike the other movies that I have watched from Jim Jarmusch, I actually have seen this movie before once. I remember watching it on VHS back in the early 2000s when one of my cousin's friends decided to rent it from Blockbuster. After watching it again nearly 20 years later, I still love this movie.

"28.1. Parhaimmillaan Ghost Dogissa on oikeinkin asiallista menoa ja meininkiä, kun New Jerseyn rakenteet leikataan katanalla kahtia. Jarmuschin samuraiaatteet ovat elokuvan sankarin ja olevinaan myös koko elokuvan selkäranka, mutta valitettavasti koko pohiskelu ei tunnu pääsevän pintaa syvemmälle missään vaiheessa. Tai koko samuraiajatus tuntuu vain päälleliimatulta, pieneltä genrekikkailulta. Mutta ei genrekikkailu kaikki pahasta ole."
