We recently took a look back at the films of Jim Jarmusch and highlighted The 10 Best Performances in his movies, and make no mistake, Johnny Depp's turn as William Blake in "Dead Man" was right in there. Not only is it one of best turns in a Jarmusch film, it's one of the best of Depp's career. That being said, it's only one element of what makes "Dead Man" one of Jarmusch's most beloved films, and the director recently elaborated at length about the making of the movie.

Jim Jarmusch Dead Man

We recently took a look back at the films of Jim Jarmusch and highlighted The 10 Best Performances in his movies, and make no mistake, Johnny Depp's turn as William Blake in "Dead Man" was right in there. Not only is it one of best turns in a Jarmusch film, it's one of the best of Depp's career. That being said, it's only one element of what makes "Dead Man" one of Jarmusch's most beloved films, and the director recently elaborated at length about the making of the movie.

Earlier this month, The Film Society Of Lincoln Center presented the movie series, "Permanent Vacation: The Films of Jim Jarmusch," and had the director himself on hand for Q&A following a screening of "Dead Man." Now the 30-minute talk is online and it's well worth a watch. The director discusses a wide variety of topics from getting Neil Young to do the score, working with cinematographer Robby Muller, this thoughts on "Dead Man" being considered a western and so much more.

It's pretty great stuff, and well worth a watch so check out the full conversation below, followed by excerpts in case you don't have time to take it all in at the moment.
