Dead Man, Jim Jarmusch, USA 1995
Mixing poetic mysticism, violence and droll comedy, “Dead Man” stars Johnny Depp as Willim Blake, a meek, naive accountant who travels from Cleveland to the godforsaken town of Machine, there to assume a position with the Dickinson Metal Works. That metaphysical context benefits enormously from the haunting musical themes that Neil Young wrote, underlining the film’s psychedelic/apocalyptic edge, and from the stunning black-and-white camera work.
