Love the music and the photography (was that Robby Mulller again?). What I can't stand is the plot, or the fact that there really isn't a plot. Plotlessness can sometimes be a virtue (in films by Wenders, for example), but not in a Western. Gotta have a solid story in a Western, one that plays on the strengths of the genre.

Saw it about a year ago.
It isn't bad although the avenging at the end is a bit of an anti-climax.

But I suppose a film so untraditional wouldn't have had a traditional ending to begin with.

Good to see Mitchum in it.

Dead Man is one of the films I wish I could see... after the graduation. Tongue It's getting to be my usual phrase now...

Well, I saw part of it in the meantime, and had to stop watching it... it didn't agree with me. Though I could see how others can love it. I still love the music.

Watched Dead Man again today and it's definitely not a bad Western, but it is more experimental and weird than it is good in a classic sense, and a little plot would have really done it much good. The music, on the other hand, was horrible: uninspired and maladjusted. Neil Young's arduous guitar derailing many important scenes in this movie is nothing that should be praised. He is, I think, a good musician, albeit a poor movie composer.


6.75/10

I disagree about the music, which I like (even if flawed), and fully agree about the rating and the lack of plot. With a nice plot, this movie could have been a masterpiece.

... but i have the feeling that Jarmush is not that much into masterpieces. I suspect him to be more interested in atmospheres than in anything else.

I also suspect that could be true.

Apparently this still isn't available with Finnish subtitles. I guess I'll have to get along with English subtitles.

What the hell... If you understand the English subtitles why don't you watch it in English?

Because it's easier to read a foreign language and understand than to listen to it and understand. That's why.

At least when you start learning it from books, which is the usual practice...

Sometimes I wish there would be subtitles in Finnish movies, too, because they mumble so bad that you can't understand what they say.
