Dead Man probably most promising film by Jim Jarmush is surreal western about city man who comes to wild west and he has to go through hard condictions. There is something beautiful and something scary about his journey and thanks to Jarmush something funny. Dead man is great film. I did expected more from it and first time when i saw it i was disappointed, but later i realised how among the bunch of poor, stereotypical, uninteresting westerns this one is really great.

Jim Jarmusch directs a weird Western, populated with offbeat characters, stark black and white cinematography, and an introverted performance from Johnny Depp. It's also one of the best Westerns ever made, as it captures a different and bleaker side of the old West.

Some parts of the movie were a little difficult to understand. But overall, it was a good movie. I especially liked the scenes with Robert Mitchum in them.

Verloren

Einer der Filme, die immer gern und immer wieder nachgefragt werden in der Filmkunstbar Fitzcarraldo ist Jim Jarmuschs Dead Man mit Johnny Depp. Dead Man, ein Gruss aus der Blütezeit des amerikanischen Indie Films der 90er! Zur Geschichte: Irgendwann in der Mitte des 18. Jahrhunderts reist William Blake (Johnny Depp) von Cleveland, wo seine Eltern gerade verstarben, in den Westen. Sein Anzug sitzt so possierlich, als würde Blake ganz bewusst nach Ärger suchen im wilden Westen. Während der Überfahrt verweilt die Kamera im Innern des Zuges, zeigt Blake, inmitten einiger widerlicher Gestalten, um dann wieder die Weite der Prärie zu zeigen. Um eine Frage vorweg zu beantworten: Gibt es eine Verbindung von William Blake und dem englischen Poeten? Wohl nur die, dass sie denselben Namen tragen. U...

Dead Man review

Back in the day when Depp selected better roles and quality movies. It starts off with William Blake (Johnny Depp) riding on a train for a job opportunity. He arrives in a town where the position was taken and stumbles into Thel, a flower girl. After an unfortunate argument which accidentally kills Thel and a former lover, Blake then is hunted by 3 notorious killers. Viewing this again since a copy was available. This reviewer forgot how funny (first half of the film) and how incredibly detailed the background development was. Screenplay was great with lines: "Every night and every morn, some to misery are born. Every morn and every night, some are born to sweet delight. Some are born to sweet delight; some are born to endless night." from Nobody One of the wittiest/funniest lines:...

3.5/4

"Dead Man" by Yojimbo

The wild west gets the Jarmusch treatment in this road movie without a road that sees eastern city accountant Johnny Depp finding himself wanted for murder and on the run in an unfamiliar wilderness and society that seems to be constructed from pure, undiluted death. The usual quirky mix of oddball characters and surreal images you'd expect from Jarmusch, Dead Man is most certainly not your typical western. Shot as westerns should be in black and white (echoing the best works of Ford and Mann) Depp's journey encounters a supporting cast to die for including Gabriel Byrne, John Hurt, Gary Farmer as his cryptic gibberish spouting Indian guide, Lance Henriksen as a psychopathic cannibal bounty hunter, Iggy Pop and Billy Bob Thornton who supply the funniest gun fight I've ever seen, Robert Mi...
