Watch: 30-Minute Talk With Jim Jarmusch About 'Dead Man'

By Kevin Jagernauth

April 25, 2014


We recently took a look back at the films of Jim Jarmusch and highlighted The 10 Best Performances in his movies, and make no mistake, Johnny Depp's turn as William Blake in "Dead Man" was right in there. Not only is it one of best turns in a Jarmusch film, it's one of the best of Depp's career. That being said, it's only one element of what makes "Dead Man" one of Jarmusch's most beloved films, and the director recently elaborated at length about the making of the movie.

Earlier this month, The Film Society Of Lincoln Center presented the movie series, "Permanent Vacation: The Films of Jim Jarmusch," and had the director himself on hand for Q&A following a screening of "Dead Man." Now the 30-minute talk is online and it's well worth a watch. The director discusses a wide variety of topics from getting Neil Young to do the score, working with cinematographer Robby Muller, this thoughts on "Dead Man" being considered a western and so much more.

It's pretty great stuff, and well worth a watch so check out the full conversation below, followed by excerpts in case you don't have time to take it all in at the moment.

Dead Man is probably my favorite of all Johnny's films. This was an interesting interview, thanks for bringing it to us. :bouquet:

There is a special place in my heart for Dead Man.

That was well worth half an hour of my time! I especially enjoyed the last part where he spoke of learning from Robert Muller.

I'm pretty sure this is really the first time I've seen extended video of Jim Jarmusch. It's much more interesting than just reading an interview.

Thanks Theresa! :heartflower:

Don't have time to watch this right now, but it looks great. Dead Man is a classic! I'd love to see Johnny work with Jarmusch again sometime.

I loved when he said that Johnny was driving him nuts and then he found out Johnny was reading Brando's book where Brando was saying actors should conflict with the director's when making movies and Johnny was trying to follow Brando's instructions. :biglaugh:

Just watched this whole interview, most enjoyable. The anecdotes about how Neil Young and Gary Farmer got involved, etc.... and then there's Johnny trying to follow Brando's advice... makes me wonder how many of his early films was he conciously trying to make life difficult for the director? I was hoping somebody might mention the Dead Man reference Johnny brought to The Lone Ranger. I'd love to figure out which specific areas in Arizona 'Dead Man' shot, because there are scenes that look like they could have been shot in areas I'm quite familiar with, such as Oak Creek Canyon between Flagstaff and Sedona, and the ponderosa pines/volcanic prairie lands northeast of Flagstaff, where the plateau just begins to drop into the desert... think I may see what information I can find online.
