Ghost Dog: Way of the Samurai (Criterion Collection)

Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai ingeniously re-imagines the gangster picture as a cross-cultural fusion of Eastern philosophy, hip-hop music, urban darkness, and movie iconography. Ghost Dog, a man of few words who shares his rooftop home with dozens of pigeons. Ghost Dog lives by the precepts of the 18th century warrior text, Hagakure: The Way of the Samurai, practicing the ancient disciplines of the samurai and applying them to his work as a contract killer.
