Poetic Violence for Connoiseurs,
This review is from: Ghost Dog - The Way Of The Samurai [DVD] (DVD)
This is my number one film of all time. The poetry of dignified violence is expressed in the subtle and transforming landscape of the reality of old school gangster philosophy, prejudice and disregard for life. Forest Whittaker gives a storming performance and the discreet Wu Tang presence simply amplifies this films status as totally and utterly COOL. Very Buddhist in vibe but don't let that put you off. With no sex scenes and only relevent swearing this film is everything all films should be. Well shot, well directed, equisitely acted throughout, (watch out for the ice cream man and the little girl) and creatively thought through. A must.

A very well put review imho. I totally agree with all your points. I won't say it's my fav movie of all time - but I won't say it isn't either :) It's definitely in my top ten greatest films of all time. I also adore this movie. Waaaay too many films totally over-do it in their attempt to seem/do "real". I think I dislike that just as much as I dislike how so many people are so easily sold on lies/hype that a film supposedly does "realism" well. This film executes "realism" perfectly.
