“Dead Man” is the best American Western made in 50 years. It’s one of the best films of the 90’s and boasts Johnny Depp’s best performance ever. In fact, its probably one of the greatest American movies ever made. A simple story, beautifully shot and tied together through Jim Jarmusch’s impeccable direction and a mystical score by Neil Young.
Few films about spirituality successfully take their audience on a spiritual journey themselves. That says quite a lot about the filmmaking.
If you haven’t seen it, I cannot more highly recommend it.
Strange, mysterious, and yet totally captivating, it’s a must-see masterpiece.
