Ghost Dog – Der Weg Des Samurai Inhaltsverzeichnis VideoGHOST DOG,Weg des Samurai ;-) watch this awesome movie,when u miss this masterpiece.
But that means that if it doesn't seem to "have a point", it actually has several, mixing the pop, the mythic, the cinematic, the realistic, etc.
As always, culture transcends boundaries and gives reason for living. Jarmusch knows how to pace his films like no other.
The mood of this film is so chill and fun in the beginning and then descends into tragedy, with no overwrought crescendos and very little dialogue.
FYI, this movie rocked my world in early high school, and yet I feel I like this movie even more today. I wish my life was so thoughtful and mellowed out.
Jarmusch is altogether hella affable—in a manner I suspect serves he himself most of all But, alas, in revisiting GHOST DOG the first full night of the year , it is more clear to me than ever that this is, as of now, the last unadulterated masterpiece he made.
Coda makes me tear up; the rooftop shipbuilder is peak lateth century. Who knew all of Jarmusch was leading up to this? When meeting with a sudden shower, you try not to get wet and run quickly along the road.
But doing such things as passing under the eaves of houses, you still get wet. When you are resolved from the beginning, you will not be perplexed, though you will still get the same soaking.
This understanding extends to everything. Jim Jarmusch wrote a great script, very original and he managed to put this existential urban fable on film using his distinctive style but in the same time achieving something new in his career, making the whole thing a gripping, reflecting movie who stands out as probably the best work he ever done.
Hybrid of black and Japanese culture, all this enhanced by Whitaker' solemn performance and RZA's music score.
Revisting this almost 20 years after and also after "Paterson", it is obvious that Jarmusch has a touch, with written words, with a certain capacity to make a compelling film about nothing, to reproduce certain patterns in any given system western, mafia, suburbs with style and empathy.
Ghost Dog does not understand French and Raymond does not understand English, but the two nonetheless seem to connect with each other.
Eventually, Ghost Dog invades Vargo's mansion and kills almost everyone he encounters single-handedly, sparing only Louie and Vargo's daughter.
That night, Ghost Dog kills Sonny Valerio at his home by shooting him through a pipe. Ghost Dog expects that Louie will attack him as he feels that Louie is obligated to avenge the murder of his boss, Vargo.
He goes to the park and gives Raymond all his money, helping him to stay in the country. Ghost Dog gives Pearline his copy of Hagakure and encourages her to read it.
Though Louie feels some loyalty to Ghost Dog, he finally confronts him at Raymond's ice cream stand with Raymond and Pearline watching.
Ghost Dog is unwilling to attack his master and allows Louie to kill him. Pearline takes Ghost Dog's gun and shoots at Louie as he flees, but the gun is empty.
Ghost Dog dies peacefully with Raymond and Pearline at his side; Louie gets into a car with Vargo's daughter who now has replaced her father as his boss.
Later, Pearline reads the Hagakure. The film was shot mostly in Jersey City, New Jersey , but the movie never mentions where the story is set.
License plates reveal it is in "The Industrial State"  and a vehicle from another state has on its license plate "The Highway State", both of which are fictional state nicknames.
Critical response to the film was largely positive. The website's critical consensus was that the movie is "An innovative blend of samurai and gangster lifestyles.
Roger Ebert gave the film 3 out of 4 stars, describing the film as "truly, profoundly weird. His profound sadness, which permeates the touching Whitaker performance, comes from his alienation from human society, his loneliness, his attempt to justify inhuman behavior murder with a belief system the samurai code that has no connection with his life or his world.
Hoberman of The Village Voice gave the film a positive review, describing is as "an impeccably shot and sensationally scored deadpan parody of two current popular modes" hitman films and mafia films.

Meditation on inevitable death should be performed daily. Every day when one's body and mind are at peace, one should meditate upon being ripped apart by arrows, rifles, spears, and swords.
Being carried away by surging waves. Being thrown into the midst of a great fire. Being struck by lightning, being shaken to death by a great earthquake.
Falling from thousand-foot cliffs, dying of disease, or committing seppuku at the death of one's Crazy Credits The second to last person thanked at the credits' close is Akira Kurosawa--the Japanese filmmaker who filmed one of the Ghost Dog's central texts, Rashomon.
