Down By Law

“Down By Law”
(USA, D: Jim Jarmusch, 1986)

From the Argus film series column: “Down by Law” features one of the best central casts of the last 20 years. The genius musician, actor, and fisherman John Lurie is joined by fellow musician, actor, and fisherman Tom Waits and genuine madman Roberto Benigni in perhaps the most challenging jailbreak comedy of all time. “Down by Law” oozes with cool. Robby Muller, Jarmusch’s career cinematographer, lends the film a glorious black and white sheen that will look fantastic on the big screen. Also, any film that features the junky king, Rockets Redglare (addicted to smack from birth), should be seen by one and all.

    Actually, now that you mention it, for my first two years here, the reason I rarely if ever went to film series events was because I’d never know where they were held, which days required money to go to, what times, etc. On certain days they’d be held at certain different places and as such, while it was a set pattern, I never went. Much too confusing for me to remember.All much easier now. So yes, I ‘assume the cinema.’ But I’ll never be 100% sure.
