    Default Dead Man - Jim Jarmusch

    This is one of my favorite movies, and I adore Neil Young's score. I feel like the depth comes more in Depp's transformation throughout the movie than any of the dialogue. It's also beautifully shot. It was recently released on the Criterion Collection, with a bunch of great bonus features.

    Anyone else seen this? Thoughts?

    I have not seen it, but I do like Jarmusch's work. Ever see "Ghost Dog"?

    I've heard good things, but have never seen it. I'll have to give it a go sometime.

    Other movies I've enjoyed by Jim are Coffee and Cigarettes and Broken Flowers. I didn't care for Down by Law though.

    I find this movie pretentious, like the line "Have you heard my poetry" as Depp/Blake shoots one guy.

    I think it's one of the most beautiful movies I've ever seen. I also love that line, it's fantastic. There are a few things that really draw me into the film; Depp's evolution throughout is one. He starts off uptight and unsure of himself, and slowly morphs into a confident being with a sense of purpose, even if it's murder. (I'm not as interested in debating if his murders are justified or not)

    I love how the movie is shot, it's gorgeous. Matched with Neil Young's stellar soundtrack, it's just brilliant.
