Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai (1999) Written and directed by Jim Jarmusch
John Tormey as Louie, Cliff Gorman as Sonny Valerio, Henry Silva as Ray Vargo and Joe Rigano as Joe Rags.

Louie: For the past four years, this guy’s done maybe twelve perfect contracts. Perfect. Like a ghost. He’s very valuable. He’s totally untraceable. I’m sure he didn’t realize anyone was gonna be there when he did Handsome Frank or he woulda backed off.  He sure as hell didn’t know that she was gonna… be there.
Sonny: Louie, unless you want to be buried next to Frank, now is the time to tell us everything you know about this mysterious, ghostlike, untraceable fuckin’ button man.

  1. The film is one of my personal favorite Jarmusch features.

  2. Mine too. Critically I know Stranger than Paradise and Down By Law are more well regarded, but this and Mystery Train are my Jarmusch favorites. I know Mystery Train especially gets very little love, but that’s ok.
