Jim Jarmusch filmed this rambling, upside-down Western.  Johnny Depp plays a fancily dressed dude from back East, civilized if a bit dim, who goes on an ill-fated journey West. He’s a character type from the classic Western, a person whose manners prove useless on the wild frontier.  Except this time we follow his strange, almost psychedelic transformation into a gun-toting outlaw. I like the black & white photography, random twangy tones of music by Neil Young — and really it wouldn’t have worked without many amazing performances.  Look for Crispin Glover who is especially scary! Worth watching.
