Jim Jarmusch’s genre-bending film stars Forest Whittaker in one of his defining roles: a Zen contract killer who has pledged his loyalty, in the spirit of the samurai, to a small-time mobster who saved his life many years before. Interpreted by critics as an homage to Jean-Pierre Melville’s 1967 neo-noir Le Samouraï, a heavy dose of atmosphere is provided by Jarmusch’s regular collaborator, cinematographer Robby Müller.

Screening as part of 1999 - a season of our favourite films celebrating their 25th anniversary this year.
