One of the most frequently heard criticisms of Jarmusch's work is that thepace is slow. I would like to make a case for patience. After all, if truebeauty and grace were delivered in one massive hit, our poor brains andhearts would not withstand the blow.In Down By Law, Jarmusch invites us to take s...
A cult classic - and yet still relatively little known. Jim Jarmusch isa master when it comes to creating atmosphere (and nobody usesstretches of silence to better comedic effect than he does). Shot inbeautiful black and white, this tale of three prisoners who make forvery unlikely companions is all...
Wow, what a movie. Far away from Hollywood, Jim Jarmusch creates a worldwhere you don't need drama, pathos and action to fascinate the watcher.Because fascinating is exactly what this movie is. A plot in the classicalsense is almost completely missing; the scenes, in their simplicitysometimes remind...
This movie was a total surprise to me. I'm sure it's very famous, butsomehow had never seen it before. From the beginning scenes, I wasexpecting a gritty low life, wind up in the gutter, down and out kindof crime movie and that was fine with me, especially if set in NewOrleans. At the same time ther...
I first saw Down By Law when it first came out, and loved it. I watchedit again recently, and it really hasn't aged at all. In fact, it hasgotten even better. I'm not sure there's another movie like it (unlessthe other Jarmusch ones are -- I haven't seen them). There are very fewmovies that spend so...
Jim Jarmusch trusts his camera, his directing, his writing, and most of allhis performers. This is a gem of a film, without pretense. The story andfilm just move, sluggishly chugging forward to an ending that is really moreof a dissolve. The story is ultimately of little importance, just enoughmo...
Down by Law is a film that has mesmerized me for years. The first time Isaw it, it sunk into me like the smile from a homeless person. It told mesomething I should've already known.I've heard people use the word "quirky", when drawing comparisons to aJarmusch character, but, I like the phrase: "Spo...
I've seen a couple of Jarmusch movies and except for Dead Man (which Ithought was an incredible bore), they were all great.Down By Law is probably one his best known flicks and is a very good lowbudget movie. It features Tom Waits, who's not only a fine musician butproves to be a decent actor as wel...
If i had to describe any aspect of this flick i'd say it was "crafted".Utterly sublime direction from Jarmusch, with a sense of desolation inthe landscape that is captured so well, it's almost surreal. Waits is,simply put, a genius, and puts in a performance which would silence anywho feel that "you...
Tom Waits, John Lurie, and Roberto Begnini share a Louisianna prisoncell together, and a prison escape film, with all of the actual escapeparts cut out. Funny, wonderful performances, stunning black and whitecinematography, great music, a human story, an oddly heart warmingending about people coming...
This is one of the best movies ever made. I cannot begin to emphasize howmuch heart is in it. It is really a story that transcends even realism andbelongs to the realm of literature, music and art. One cannot claim toknowanything about movies without having seen this one. It´s like Chaplinreading t...
Jarmusch makes films about people.This is, to my taste, his best film. If you like people and you likewatching people, you will enjoy this film. Jarmusch shows us somestrange but interesting people, and these characters are delightfullystrange and interesting -- but, importantly, these people arebel...
I watched this film again last night having originally seen it when itcame out and again a few times over the years. I still love it and findit endlessly fascinating. One of the other reviews suggests that thefirst half hour is not very exciting. It may not set my pulse racingbut I love the way it s...
This movie takes an original approach on the prison-movie genre.Instead of going over-the-top in its drama and emotions, the movieprefers to keep the movie deliberately small and personal with itscharacters and emotions. It makes "Down by Law" an original and alwaysintriguing movie to watch, though ...
It's really that simple. Bring good actors together with decentdirectorship you get a good movie. No need for CGI or even a veryinteresting story.Zack, Jack and Robertino are three very different people. Zack is apimp, Jack is an unsuccessful DJ, Robertino is an Italian tourist.Somehow they all end ...
What is cool? Is it defined by the clothes on your back, the shades onyour face, the records you own, or the way you walk? On his brilliant1985 album 'Rain Dogs', actor-musician Tom Waits rasps about "walkingSpanish down the hall" and it's probably as good as any definition ofthis chimerical, near-u...

Filmed in seemingly contemporary black and white and starring themusicians Tom Waits with his trademark rasping, gravelly singing voiceand John Lurie of the experimental music group "The Lounge Lizards"(also star of the international fishing series "Fishing with John",Down by Law portrays an episode...
Jim Jarmusch has this odd way with films, where they vaguely resemblesome genre but not really, and then become something else... some callit genre-undermining, but it's not really that, nor do I want to saythat he delightfully rends them to pieces or pastes them together...it's just as if he starts...
Good news #1: "Down by law" begins with a song from the most notoriousloser of the popular music, Mr. Tom Waits. And not only because theowner of the drunk piano plays one of the main roles of the film, butalso because the first sequences of the movie take place in NewOrleans, a city full of hookers...
After seeing "Stranger than paradise" and "Dead man" i forced myself towalk into a nearest DVD-shop and purchase this piece of art..Well i hadmy doubts because i had difficulties to stand Tom Waits (Because of histerrible music and annoying stage performances) but Tom surprised mepositively along wi...
If you believe that the devil incarnate is a cross between Richard NixonandBilly Rae Cirus, then logic states Tom Waits is christ reborn. For thisweird looking, weird soundin tunesmith is in fact a terrific actor.In by far and a way his most impressive role (he looks bored in MysteryMen,for example...
This one of my favorite contemporary U.S. films and Jim Jarmusch's(Ghost Dog, Dead Man, Mystery Train, Night on Earth, et al) second, hisfollow-up to Stranger Than Paradise (which he began in grad school). Ifirst discovered the great Tom Waits (too many albums to mention; films:Ironweed, At Play in...
What I really enjoy about "Down by Law" is not the fact that it is a roadmovie, nor that the characters suffer a rite of passage through theirimprisonment and subsequent flight, nor any of the other characteristicsmentioned by other users; it is in how the film presents human life andhuman relations...
I count this film next to "A Clockwork Orange" as one of the films had ansubstantial effect on how I perceive films. With that strange comparisonmade, consider this: The pace of our society has accelerated so rapidly,that in the last 10 years, it's been easy to get complacent about an artform that,...
