“If the
doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is:
infinite.”

 23 years
ago, today (May 26), “Dead
Man”
debuted on the 1995

48th Cannes Film Festival at Cannes. The western black and
white movie had mixed

responses from critics: Some blames the color for the 2h of nonsense
and monotonous scenes. Some blames the director for not connect perfectly the
character’s role to the original Blake’s poetry. In the other hand, some calls
it as

One of the very best movies of the 1990s” and was even included as
“1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die”. Now it is considered a cult film.

 > Synopsis: William
Blake an out-of-work accountant from Cleveland, Ohio, goes to a frontier town
on the promise of a job, but once there he finds out that the position was already
taken. After being briefly mixed up in a love triangle, kills the son of the
most powerful man in town in self-defense, and now, lost and confused and with a
bullet in his chest, he is forced to run for his life with the help of a Native
American, called Nobody, who believes Blake is the reincarnation of the poet
with the same name.

 > Curiosities:

* The film is entirely in black and white.

* Three years later, in 1998, Johnny appears again

in a movie poster as William Blake in the
movie “L.A. Without a Map” 

*

The director, Jim Jarmusch, wrote the movie
already thinking in Depp as William Blake, even before asking him. If Depp
refused, the director thought in cancel the whole project.

*

The movie was banned in Australia because of
sexual and extreme violence. Later it was registered and classified as
R18+. The scenes have less the 4 seconds.

*

Johnny loved the movie, the story and his
character, but he wanted this to be his last “naive character”… Well, we know
this doesn’t work…

*

18 years later, in 2013 in “Lone Ranger”, Depp
played a similar role to Dead-Man, but now he is the Native
American.

Happy 24th Anniversary for the “Dead Man”!

24 years ago today (May 26), “Dead Man” debuted on 

48th Cannes Film Festival at Cannes in France.
