Dead Man shows a man’s physical and spiritual journey through a chaotic world; one of chance, consequence, and personal evolution. After the death of his parents William Blake (Johnny Depp) heads out for employment as an accountant at Dickinson Steel Works run by a hardened man (Robert Mitchum). When circumstances unfold that Blake has shot and killed the owner’s son he flees, ultimately encountering a Indian named Nobody with whom he goes on a personal odyssey. With obvious symbolic gestures towards art and poetry, nothingness, and the delicate line between life and death, Jarmusch gives a dreamscape of a western that offers a somewhat biting look at America.
