Forest Whitaker makes an unlikely modern samurai with his laser-sighted pistols, shabby street clothes, and oddly graceful gait--but then Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai is an unusual film. Quirky, contemplative, and at ...  more »

A surreal slice of life movie about hitmen and mafiosos. Forest Whitaker give a dynamite performance. A must see for people who are into the whole samurai thing.

Movie Reviews

One of Jim Jarmusch's best movies
justsomeguy | 01/28/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love this movie. Saw it ages ago - and I was hooked. Most of Jim Jarmusch's films I really like. That quirky urban feel to them - the dialogue - the music!

This DVD is a fine transfer of this classic. The movie itself is still great fun to watch - the music by RZA really draws you into the gritty urban chaos that is Ghost Dog's world. The dynamic between two dying breeds of "warriors" - Ghost Dog and his samurai code vs. the aging mafioso - is just played out beautifully.

Not to mention - Forrest Whitaker! He is just great in this - my favorite film of his."

"This is one amazing movie. Completely unique in my experience. The music adds to the action perfectly.
Don't by the RZA soundtrack CD because, although excellent, I think it is a complete rip-off."
