As a part of the project “Jarmuschian Emancipation”, in this post, I review “Ghost Dog: The Way of Samurai” (1999), Jim Jarmusch’s first feature film after “Dead Man”. After a brief summary of the plot, I explain the ways to view Ghost Dog’s emancipation and cover several important and trivial facts about the film. I conclude by listing the factors I will later use to compare all the films of this project.
Caution: Although I don’t believe that knowing the end of a good movie can ruin the experience, I have to mention that in this review, I’m giving away the ending. So, in case you haven’t seen the film and seriously think you won’t enjoy the film knowing its ending, stop here and please do come back later.
