Our take

The very essence of cool pulses through the veins of this distinctive genre mixtape from Jim Jarmusch. With an enigmatic Forest Whitaker in the title role, and Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA delivering the bass-heavy beats, Ghost Dog is a stylishly eccentric synthesis of hitman thriller and bushido lore.
