“A hip-hop movie, a mob movie, a martial arts movie – Jim Jarmusch’s Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, starring Forest Whitaker as a pigeon-loving street samurai, is a beguiling mash-up of styles that broke all the rules.” - BFI
Ghost Dog (Forest Whitaker) is a contract killer, a master of his trade who can whirl a gun at warp speed and moves through this world like a phantom -- stealthy and evanescent. In the spirit of the samurai, he has pledged his loyalty to a small time mobster named Louie (John Tormey) who saved his life many years before. (116 min)
