Ghost Dog

Directed by Jim Jarmusch

Years after his last fiction feature DEAD MAN, Jarmusch returns with another view of American life (and Hollywood genre) through the eyes of an outsider, in this case with a nod to both Akira Kurosawa and Sergio Leone. Whitaker gives a commanding performance as Ghost Dog, a lone Mafia assassin who silently glides through life, guided by spiritual Samurai codes with only pet pigeons for friends.When the tables are turned and he becomes the target, Ghost Dog must draw on his spiritual strength to survive.
