Ghost Dog w/Live Commentary From RZA – 36 Cinema
Directed by Jim Jarmusch | 1999 | 116 minutes | Rated R | US | English
From 36 Cinema – “Jim Jarmusch combined his love for the ice-cool crime dramas of Jean-Pierre Melville and Seijun Suzuki with the philosophical dimensions of samurai mythology for an eccentrically postmodern take on the hit-man thriller. In one of his defining roles, Forest Whitaker brings a commanding serenity to his portrayal of a Zen contract killer working for a bumbling mob outfit, a modern man who adheres steadfastly to the ideals of the Japanese warrior code even as chaos and violence spiral around him.
This screening of Ghost Dog will feature live commentary from RZA, who provided the score for the movie. Joining RZA is Michael Gillespie, Associate Professor of Film in the Department of Media and Communication Arts and the Black Studies Program at The City College of New York.
