  mystical western-noir

| | See all albertIIjr's reviews (459)

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.

  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!!!!
