Published In: United Kingdom, 01 July 2000
When it was released in 1995, "Dead Man "puzzled many audiences and critics. Jim Jarmusch's reputation was for directing slick, hip contemporary films. And "Dead Man" was a black-and-white Western. As time has passed, though, the number of its admirers has grown considerably. Indeed "Dead Man, " with its dark and unconventional treatment of violence, racism and capitalism, may be Jarmusch's finest work to date.
This is Jonathan Rosenbaum's view. For him, "Dead Man "is both a quantum leap and a logical next step in Jarmusch's career, and it's a film that speaks powerfully to present-day concerns. Starring Johnny Depp as the uprooted accountant William Blake and Gary Farmer as his enigmatic Native American companion, Nobody, and with startling cameos from Robert Mitchum, John Hurt and Iggy Pop, "Dead Man" is by turns shocking, comic, and deeply moving. This book explores and celebrates a masterpiece of 1990s American cinema.

'The book follows the narrative and picks out some of the stand-out cameos as well as some of the choice of dialogue, music, style and violence within. Just another good choice from the BFI/Palgrave on another solid film with heavy content.' - Filmwerk
