Adventures in Podcasting: LAMBcast Episode #97
Posted by Courtney Small
To steal a line from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which will come up on the LAMBcast devoted to this Movie of the Month selection, it's quite possible that Jim Jarmusch, and this film in particular, are " Too weird to live, and too rare to die." Dead Man is some kind of neo-Western, a postmodern breed of film that's too strange and slow perhaps for most audiences, but is music to the heart of so many others. Filled with striking images and insane characters, it definitely keeps you (and its protagonist) on your toes. Dylan, Nick, Fredo, Dan Heaton and myself sat down to try and make sense of this film.
