Dead Man

With its irreverent, blackly comedic and a-historical approach to the Western as a genre, Dead Man anticipates Tarantino's Django Unchained albeit with a more poetically distanced and less plot-driven style.

DVD Extras
: A director's commentary would have been valuable for this but unfortunately there are only some outakes and deleted scenes, the theatrical trailer and what passes for a music video of Neil Young's theme music but which is really a compile of clips from the movie and Young playing guitar.
