Ghost Dog - The Way of the Samurai

Ghost Dog-The Way of the Samurai - This film by Jim Jarmusch is one of the best Samurai movies ever made. Forget that it is in the US and not a Japanese person. Forest Whitaker is the perfect choice for a street-smart samurai "hitman" in America. He has such a convincing calmness in everything he does, whether wiping out a mafia den, or talking to a little girl in the park encouraging her to read. He draws his gun as if it were a sword (and practices some grea sword moves also). This movie is much more philosophically accurate than Japanese "Ronin" films. This is about a true Samurai who is loyal to one Retainer, who happens to be a low level mafia boss. US Region 1 DVD. - $20
