25. Ghost Dog – Jim Jarmusch (1999)

Repeat Viewing.

An action movie without any action, well isn’t that just typically Jarmusch? The cross-over between Samurai movie, Gangster movie and beatnik culture is a rare treat. With RZA’s damn-right dirty score and Forest Whitaker’s finest work-  this role was made for him, literally so JJ says- it cannot help but entertain you if you put in a little effort. And I can’t let this review hit the press without a mention for Isaach De Bankole, perhaps the most under-appreciated actor ever. He should be a star.

    I’m really angry that this wasn’t Ghost Dad. My Bill Cosby senses tingled.
