Watch Down by Law

"It's not where you start - It's where you start again."

Down by Law is a 1986 Jim Jarmusch movie. Jarmusch is one of the leading filmmakers in the world of indie films. Tom Waits, John Lurie and Roberto Benigni star in the leading roles. The three are convicts who escape from jail together. This is a very intelligent and funny film that forgoes stereotypes and clichés. The story takes place in the Louisiana bayou. It is shot in black and white and features the slow camera work of Robby Muller. Waits is a disc jockey, Lurie is a pimp and Benigni is an Italian tourist with minimal English skills.
