    A strikingly enigmatic anti-western. The imagery here is always memorable (very reminiscent of Werner Herzog) and I still love how Jarmusch avoids typical plot mechanics in favor of memorable characters.

    Dead Man is not as cool as it wants to be but I have to admit I liked it. At times it is cheesy but at times the laid back, surreal vibe works. Also, I am a sucker for black-and-white photography. Better to not have high hopes when queueing this one, but rather sometime give it a try and perhaps be pleasantly surprised.

    Well, this was the 2nd time that I watched this..thinking that maybe I missed how good this was supposed to be the first time. No. I still am not sure what all the hype is about. This is just ok to me...
