Dead Man: Death, Poetry, and Music in the old west.

Jim Jarmusch’s  movie Dead Man is a blending of surreal scenes, beautifully understated acting, and the haunting music of Neil Young’s solo guitar, and it tells the story of William Blake, an accountant from Ohio, who comes to the edge of the American wilderness and ends up moving through a world that is completely alien to him. Jarmusch does a brilliant job of conveying the feeling of the stranger in a strange land. If you let the story take you, you will flow with it like a river to the sea.
