No-one can survive becoming a legend.

William Blake (Johnny Depp) set out on an exciting journey to start his life over in a new town with a new job. He never could have prepared himself for what was to come. Through a mysterious chain of events, he becomes involved in a love triangle that ends in a double murder--with him as the suspect. Alone and scared, he tries to escape, but soon discovers that he is being hunted down by men who have been paid to find and kill him, and befriends a Native American loner, 'Nobody' (Gary Farmer), who believes that he is the English poet 'William Blake', teaches him to face the dangers that follow a "dead man."

With tremendous performances from the likes of Johnny Depp, Gary Farmer (later reprising the same role in Jarmusch's 'Ghost Dog') and movie-legend Robert Mitchum; the amazing rock score by Neil Young drifts in and out superbly, as William Blake journeys through Jarmush's monochrome vision of the old west.

 A Spectacular Study of the Deep West

| | See all plumbernator's reviews (66)

Jim Jarmusch's dark and bitter tale of a man who journeys in to the deep west after commiting murder is as good as sprituel jorneys could be.
The scenery is spectacular, the black and white print adds splendidly to the mood, while Johnny Depp gives one of his greatest performances.
The shame for this film is due to its platform release, meaning many have not heard of this film.
It has alot to satisfy alot of audiences, anyone big on their dramas should give it a go as should people who like to watch smaller, more conterpory cinema. There is some violence, a small sputter at the beginning and some small moments later on in the film will keep some action enthusiats entertained.
Essentially though this is more for drama and cult movie lovers, if you fit that discription, SEE THIS NOW!!!!

Top 100  Reviewer Top 100 DVD Reviewer Top 100 Music Reviewer Top 100 Sport and Outdoor Reviewer

contains all essential elements of a classical western: good vs bad, indians, shooting, wanted-posters, the typical landscapes, ... you name it. except there's a jarmusch-touch added wich means this movie's an alternative western containing some deep thinking about the west, almost philosophical, not to say mystical or mythical. it's definitely not a common western, you'll have to do some effort watching (and understanding) it. but it leaves you with a satisfied feeling.
as always jarmusch succeeded in putting together a strange but very competent bunch and combination of actors (with a really hilarious appearance by iggy pop), and convincing neil young to write and perform the soundtrack is not something to ignore.
as with his other movies, this conept works and results in a real cinematic experience.
