Dead Man

Before he spilled his ego all over The Lone Ranger, Johnny Depp starred in another, far weirder Western--Jim Jarmusch's highly metaphysical, hypnotically paced 1995 film Dead Man. Depp plays a wounded accountant named William Blake who wanders around a surreal western frontier some time in the last half of the 19th century. He teams up with a Native American outcast named Nobody (Gary Farmer), sees some apocalyptic visions and crosses paths with Iggy Pop (who's wearing a dress and reading the Bible). The whole thing is filmed in black-and-white, and Neil Young provided the noisy score. Double-featured with Powwow Highway. 120 minutes R.
