Johnny Gets His Gun

Jim Jarmusch's Dead Man lies on the frontiers of tedium

Dead Man is torpid in a major way. At the end the film sounds a spiritual note that has all the sophistication and nuance of stoned freshmen sitting around a dorm room at 3 a.m. talking about God. It's an empty portentousness that seems deep and moving to people who've taken the same drug, but ridiculous to everyone else.

Dead Man opens Fri, May 10, at the Gateway in S.F. and the Act One/Two in Berkeley.
