Dead Man

Only Jim Jarmusch could direct a Western like this: a poetry-loving American Indian mistakes accountant William Blake (Johnny Depp) for the English writer by the same name, while bounty hunters take Blake for a murderer. Jarmusch packs his independent-minded film with an unlikely collection of castmates, including Iggy Pop, Gabriel Byrne, John Hurt -- and Robert Mitchum, in one of his final big-screen roles.

Coy to a fault, the movie collapses under its own weight with 90 minutes to go, despite Robby MAuller's impressive black-and-white photography, which puts the film on a higher artistic plane than other equally unbearable movies.
