Jonathan Rosenbaum, a movie critic who's penned tons of books and wrote for the Chicago Reader for years, will be visiting the Cinematheque next month. In anticipation of his visit, our favorite art house is screening 10 of Rosenbaum's favorite movies. Dead Man, Jim Jarmusch's 1995 weirdo western starring Johnny Depp, is one of them. Captain Jack plays a Cleveland accountant, and Iggy Pop is in it. What more incentive do you need? At the Cinematheque at 7:15 p.m. Friday, September 9, and 9:25 p.m. Saturday, September 10. — Michael Gallucci
