Catch this excellant film on C4 at the stupidly late 11.40 - or vid' it more's the like, thy knows! This is what RT sais anyhoo, Jim Jarmuschs quirky crime drama creates a world in which humour exists solely in the eye of the beholder. Forest Whitaker is perfect as a bushido-obsessed hit man who communicates with his boss by pigeon. The outbursts of explosive violence tend to spoil the absurdist ambience. I'd disagree with the complaint considering the story, tut. One of the old gangste(a)rs is a classic trendy vicar who has to be seen to be believed. And Forest Whitaker is supreme in his handling of the role along with music to suit the mood. Plus his confidant ice cream vendor mate moments are gems to savour.
