A movie as laconic as its hero, Ghost Dog is nonetheless diminished by its most un-Zen-like attachment to this underlying sentimentality.

It's the kind of movie you wish you had more time to absorb and could see more than once before reviewing.

Am I the only one who finds the substance of this movie repulsive?
