Rating: R; for strong violence and language.
Jim Jarmusch combines his love for the ice-cool crime dramas 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.
Speical features: New Q&A; New conversation; New interview and more.
