Dead Man [VHS] 
Johnny Depp stars in this Western drama written and directed by Jim Jarmusch. Set in 19th-century America, William Blake (Depp) travels west to the company town of Machine to take up a position at Dickinson's metal works, only to find that the vacancy has already been filled. After being chased away by the company's tough owner John Dickinson (Robert Mitchum), Blake becomes involved in a series of chaotic and violent confrontations which leave him wounded and close to death. However, Blake's fortunes soon change when he is befriended by a Native American named Nobody (Gary Farmer), who vows to be his guide as he continues with the rest of his journey.
This disappointment from Jim Jarmusch stars Johnny Depp in a mystery Western about a 19th-century accountant named William Blake, who spends his last coin getting to a hellish mud town in Texas and ends up penniless and doomstruck in the wilderness. A benevolent if goofy Native American (Gary Farmer) takes an interest in guiding Blake on a quest for identity in his earthly journey, but the film is really just a string of endless shtick about inbred woodsmen, dumb lawmen, and a trio of irritable killers. With Robert Mitchum, Iggy Pop, Gabriel Byrne, Alfred Molina, and a noodling soundtrack by Neil Young. --Tom Keogh, Amazon.com

Those incessant guitar riffs do grate on you after a while lol,.. however I must say this for my taste is a classic Depp when he was a young hungry actor at the top of his game before all the pirates stuff! Great story well directed atmospheric and apart from the bleedin guitar well worth a watch.
