Format: Paperback
a much maligned and mis-understood film when it came out, it's great to see a writer the stature of Rosenbaum giving "Dead Man" the respectful examination it deserves.
Rosenbaum mixes his own thoughtful analysis with excerpts from various interviews he conducted with Jarmusch to illuminate the many aspects of the film: from Neil Young's haunting soundtrack, to the role of tobacco, to its place in the acid western genre.
if you love the film, this book is the perfect companion piece.

Format: Paperback
Rosenbaum is, for my money, the best film critic out there. His original essay on "Dead Man" led me to take another look at the film, which has since become one of my all-time favorite movies. This thoughtful commentary will help you think about what is probably the best American film made in the 1990s. And, if you like this, you should follow Rosenbaum's columns in the Chicago Reader. I often disagree with him, but there's no one more thoughtful, informed, and passionate about movies; he's a treasure.
