Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It seems to be Blake's name as much as anything that propels the character deep into a strange frontier where Blakean ideals of innocence and integrity have been obliterated by ignorance and cruelty."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"Jarmusch's lyrical update on the western genre is a real joy."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"Minimalism defines this revisionist and challenging noir- Western, a welcome artistic departure from Jarmusch's increasingly tired and tiresome Downtown New York sensibility."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Jim Jarmusch's most stunning achievement."
‑ Zach Campbell, Slant Magazine
"It is an American masterpiece and one of the best films of the '90s."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"a low-key classic of strangely poetic beauty - a western for sleepwalkers and dreamers."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
"Quite exquisite. Beautiful, really."
‑ Dan Jardine, Apollo Guide
"Bad, but not uninteresting"
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
"Visionary Western with interesting bits on the myth of the frontier, violence and artistic outlaws."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"A visual, poetic journey not unlike Coppola's Apocalypse Now."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"I was held by Depp's transformation from white-man non-entity to the Jarmusch version of the affectless Man With No Name."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"Characteristically meandering and sardonic, with Robby Muller's floating, shimmering camerawork, a catalog of witty cameos, and one of the most beautiful modern film-scores"
‑ Leo Goldsmith, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
"Depp and Jarmusch combine for something fairly bizarre, yet quietly rewarding."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"It's completely irony-free because it's so convinced that it has something potent to say."
‑ Jeremy Heilman, MovieMartyr.com
"The director's pacing and the relaxed and smooth editing by Jay Rabinowitz make for a dreamy show."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
