Dead Man is a little known movie starring Johnny Depp. Lance Henriksen, Gabrielle Byrne, Steve Buscemi, Crispin Glover, and other well-known faces make appearances throughout.
It is a Western, though more along the lines of Deadwood or The Unforgiven then the "traditional" Western.
Particularly striking to me was the portrayal of Native Americans, not as the usual stereotypes... but as "real" people with complex emotions/drives rather than the cardboard cuttouts Hollywood has fed us in the past. The character "Nobody" really stood out.
This movie will not be for everyone... it is a deep, mess with your head, make you think kind of flick. It also has a very awesome ongoing guitar soundtrack by none other than Neil Young.
Highly reccomended for fans of Johnny Depp, Westerns, Native American culture, and people who like to be somewhat challenged on occasion when they watch a movie!
