The LAMBcast: Jim Jarmusch's Dead Man


I love talking movies, and it's great to dig into strange, mysterious films like Jim Jarmusch's Dead Man. It's a divisive film that is a favorite to some and maddening to others, and both parties have good reasons for their opinions. This week on the LAMBcast, I joined fellow bloggers Dylan, Fredo, Courtney, and Nick for the feature discussion about this intriguing movie. No matter what you think, you should find plenty of interesting conversation in this podcast. It was fun to record because everyone had such diverse opinions.

I'm in the middle on Dead Man and find it both compelling and frustrating at different points. I can't deny that it's an original film that should be explored by more film lovers, especially younger viewers who missed its 1995 release. The black-and-white cinematography is excellent, and it's nice to see Johnny Depp playing such a laid-back character. For more details, check out the latest episode of the LAMBcast and let me know what you think!

  2. No problem, Steve. I couldn't match your epic rave about libraries, but I gave it a shot.
