The Uncountable

Only the unique is permitted to the realm of joy and pain. The unique is uncountable. Two is inapplicable to it. Two negates, even slays, the unique’s raison d’être. So, the unique is not one. One merely exists to pave the way to two.


Jarmuschian Emancipation: Ghost Dog

As a part of the project “Jarmuschian Emancipation”, in this post I’ll discuss “Ghost Dog: The Way of Samurai” (1999), Jim Jarmusch’s first feature film after “Dead Man”. After a brief summary of the plot, I’ll review the ways to view Ghost Dog’s emancipation, cover several important and trivial facts about the film and conclude by listing the factors that will probably be used later to compare all the films of this project.
