No one knew it then and they still don’t.
When Forrest Whitaker starred in Jim Jarmusch’s 1999 film Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, it was impossible to see at the time that eventually it was going to radically impact the women’s college volleyball landscape.
Ghost Dog, the character played by Whitaker, studies “Hagakure: The Way of the Samurai.”
You have to watch the movie a few times, but if you pay close enough attention, it is clear Jim Jarmusch is using Ghost Dog to send subliminal messages to unsuspecting volleyball players.
