One of Jarmush's best,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ghost Dog - The Way Of The Samurai [DVD] (DVD)
You never know what a Jum Jarmush film will be like - since the crazy years of Daunbailò with Roberto Benigni, every film cen be totally new,always unusual, though not necessarily always good. After the amazing Dead man, an allucinatory black and white western with Johnny Depp so pale you'd think he is going to dissolve on the screen, there came Ghost Dog, with a very solid-looking professional Killer, Forest Whittaker, in a highly unusual version of an action movie. The best characteristic is probably the surprising mixture of lyricism and grotesque comedy. A very good narrative pace, which goes very well with the musical score and the livid, bleak colours.
