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.
