Look past the slow pacing...

"The eagle never lost so much time as when he submitted to learn from the crow."

Dead Man is definitely not a film for all tastes. This stylish production is sometimes difficult to watch due to the grainy black and white imagery, not to mention some of the harsh images of violence and even cannibalism.

Certainly not your average western, we follow a young accountant ... read more

Jim Jarmusch treats us to a darkly brooding gem that is every bit as impressive a character piece than it is a western. I think Jim's buddy Nick Cave was aiming for similar when he wrote 'The Proposition'. That was good... this is in a different league.

One of the best ever

After all these years, this movie is still one of my all-time favorites. In fact, I remember very well when it came out. Indeed, I even saw the damned thing when it was released and I was just completely blown away by this movie. I mean, basically, I was very young back then, I had never seen anything similar before and, in my opinion, it was nearly pitch-perfect. Basically, the whole thing was ju... read more

“(MU) Jarmusch's masterpiece, a wetern oda that trascends the genre and goes to the roots, moving west with european naiveté, finding native american naiveté ('Nobody' thonks Depp's William Brake is the real Blake) and vising the first indian wonderfull simple city I know” read more

"Un western bastante extraño. Trata de un joven que buscaba trabajo en un pueblo de vaqueros, pero lamentablemente es rechazado y se ve obligado a matar a alguien. Entonces se da una gran recompensa para matarlo. Por suerte un indio le enseña a disparar contra los bandidos. Aunque parezca el típico western tiene elementos que lo hacen muy diferente. Su conclusión y el sentido de la historia es lo que la hace especial."

" Date: 11/24/2020 Viewed: Criterion Channel First viewing Note: I always wanted to see this movie for years after hearing amazing things about it. So far, Jim Jarmusch has failed to let me down. I was worry that I was not going to like this movie because of the hype. This movie lived up to my expectations because this movie was amazing. Dead Man is probably my favorite movie from Jim Jarmusch so far. I was blown away by this movie after it was over. To be honest, I don't know what to say abo"

"On the run after murdering a man, accountant William Blake encounters a strange North American man named Nobody who prepares him for his journey into the spiritual world. This is the perfect example of a movie that takes a classic genre, turns it upside down and then gives you something charmingly fresh and ecstatic. Director Jim Jarmusch throws away all the rules of the Western genre, brings his own themes and his own style to the Wild West and gives us a unique and irreplaceable experience. W"

Slant's 100 Best Westerns of All Time (100 movies items)

"Like most great westerns, Jim Jarmusch’s Dead Man holds the American West and its (white) inhabitants up to close scrutiny, and in this sense its radicalism surpasses virtually every earlier example. The ultimate goal for Johnny Depp’s William Blake is one of consciousness. He must come to an understanding of his own life and death as he lumbers through the American West like a wounded animal in search of solitude. His existence here is a veritable transition from innocence to experience. Ev"
