William Blake, the great poet appears within Johny Depp's persona in this surreal western set in ugly landscapes full of brutal, disgraced and violent people. I want to draw your attention to the words of Depp in this very scene. He repeats that throughout the film.
PS 1: Another memorable appearance is that of Robert Mitchum as Mr Dick, the owner of the town called Machine in which his factory is based. This is a must see film, and must have soundtrack by Neil Young, in my opinion.
P.S 2: Jarmusch got the 3rd price with this film in Cannes that year (1995), 1st was Kusturica with Underground and 2nd Theo Angelopoulos with Ulysses's Gaze.
*Cinemust is a rush of filmic sequences striped from their original context. The idea behind it is to reveal details that otherwise would maybe pass unnoticed.
