Awesome / Dead Man

  • A lot of tropes in the Western are subverted in Jim Jarmusch's Dead Man, but William gets a legit CMoA with this scene:
    Detective: You William Blake?
    William: Yes, I am. Do you know my poetry?
  • Also, pretty much any time Nobody saves his ass, which does work with the film's Western subversions since Nobody is Native American.
  • When the racist missionary tries to pull a gun on Blake, only to be stabbed in the hand, shot in the chest, and robbed by Blake and Nobody.
    Missionary: God damn you to hell, William Blake.
    William: He already has. (bang)
