Director Jim Jarmusch followed up his brilliant breakout Stranger Than Paradise with another, equally beloved portrait of loners and misfits in America. When fate lands three hapless men—an unemployed disc jockey (Short Cuts’ Tom Waits), a small-time pimp (Fishing with John’s John Lurie), and a strong-willed Italian tourist (Life Is Beautiful’s Roberto Benigni)—in a Louisiana prison, a singular adventure begins. Described by Jarmusch as a “neo-Beat noir comedy,” DOWN BY LAW is part nightmare and part fairy tale, featuring sterling performances and crisp black-and-white photography by esteemed cinematographer Robby Müller (Paris, Texas).
Roberto Benigni is brilliant and a joy. The movie transforms classic film noir into hilarious comedy.Published 1 month ago by Robert Gilbert
This is a timeless story that always fills me with hope.
I will never get tired of it.
I saw this film in a Cinema when it came out in 1986. Off-Beat Humor than appealed to me. Great to have It in this 2 DVD edition, with Interviews & other features.Published 9 months ago by Sean Folsom
Gritty characters; good acting; good story and I liked New Orleans in black and white.Published 11 months ago by Sandra E. Chatelain
Not bad but a little disappointing...the actors were great, and there was some initial thrilling action, but about half way through, the movie started to fall apart somewhat.Published 11 months ago by Bill Washington
