DIRECTOR: JIM JARMUSCH
CAST: JOHNNY DEPP, GARY FARMER, CRISPIN GLOVER
Robby Müller’s crisp, surreally lucid black-and-white photography and Neil Young’s beautifully damaged electric guitar score are but two of the standout elements that make up Jim Jarmusch’s sui generis, visionary western, in which timid accountant William Blake (Johnny Depp) comes west from Cleveland for work only to be wounded, set on the lam, and eventually led by a cryptic guide named Nobody (Gary Farmer) on a spiritual journey through a landscape peopled with eccentrics and grotesques. One of the crucial American films of the 1990s.
