Wonder why it did not get its rightful accolades before DVD/VCR release, a for hire black hitman raising homing pigeons on a roof top for the Italian mobs? The reviews at rotten tomatoes:

Great movie. Tarentino-esque. Really original plot and memorable characters. RZA soundtrack.

One of director Jim Jarmusch's most stylish films. In it, he manages to mash up his obvious love of gangster films, samurai films, and hip hop music. Whittaker is brilliant as an unflappable assassin who lives by a higher code. The soundtrack, created by RZA of Wu-Tang clan, is fantastic. I also love Jarmsuch's portrayal of a mafioso family in decline.
