04:39 pm: "Dead Man" Special Edition
This is from 1995 -- a black and white Western starring Johnny Depp as an accountant named William Blake. It's an odd film with snippets of scenes all the way through, very little direct consistency. Blake kills a man who tries to kill him and the man's dad sends people out after him. He meets an Indian who was kidnapped to England and knows about Blake-the-poet and helps him.

The little snippets show us a fair amount about people but there's not much of a plot. I watched the credits because most of the film was clearly somewhere other than the ending, which was in the Pacific Northwest. Turned out to be Arizona.

This was a really unusual film and I don't think I'd watch it again.

All of Johnny Depps films can be catorigized as really unusual films. Even his big hits, I think, are rather strange. And if the movie isn't too strange, his character is! Makes his films interesting at least.

I took a date to this one. Ended up married.

Make of that what you will.

Last week, our NetFlix queue brought us 1995's "Don Juan de Marco", with Depp as a young man who thinks he is Don Juan and Marlon Brando as his doctor. I was pleasantly surprised.
