Special Classic Robby Müller
Robby Müller: Director of Photography

Dead Man (1995)

Hoezo in KINO

Jim Jarmusch’ completely unique take on the Western genre, the minimalist score by Neil Young and beautiful black and white cinematography by Robby Müller make this film a poetic and mesmerizing masterpiece. One of Müller’s reasons to shoot in black and white was so the viewer wouldn’t get distracted by the magnificent landscape, and solely focus on the journey and internal world of the main character.
