It seems to be Blake's name as much as anything that propels the character deep into a strange frontier where Blakean ideals of innocence and integrity have been obliterated by ignorance and cruelty.

a low-key classic of strangely poetic beauty - a western for sleepwalkers and dreamers.

I was held by Depp's transformation from white-man non-entity to the Jarmusch version of the affectless Man With No Name.

Characteristically meandering and sardonic, with Robby Muller's floating, shimmering camerawork, a catalog of witty cameos, and one of the most beautiful modern film-scores

Minimalism defines this revisionist and challenging noir- Western, a welcome artistic departure from Jarmusch's increasingly tired and tiresome Downtown New York sensibility.

Visionary Western with interesting bits on the myth of the frontier, violence and artistic outlaws.

It's completely irony-free because it's so convinced that it has something potent to say.
