Down by Law

Buy Tickets

Double Feature with KINGS OF THE ROAD (12:15, 6:00)

(1986) dir Jim Jarmusch w/John Lurie, Roberto Benigni, Tom Waits, Nicoletta Braschi, Ellen Barkin, Rockets Redglare [107 min; 35mm]
Another wonderfully ramshackle road movie, Jim Jarmusch’s DOWN BY LAW stars Lurie, Benigni, and Waits as a hapless trio of New Orleans prison inmates who somehow manage to escape into the Bayou.

Staff Pick: Kim, Cardinal – saw long ago back in my pre-fossil days – fun – I think the Italian man who played a postman in another film was in this one. Oh and Tom Waits (the gravel voiced pirate).

“Mutual irritation merges into grudging friendship, and the wit manages to be both broad and smart, soulful and silly, subtle and raucous, all at the same time.” – Emma Johnston, Total Film

“An expansion on Stranger Than Paradise‘s narrow field of vision and deadpan spirit, Down By Law continues to champion the sort of down-and-out antiheroes that rarely occupy the fringes of other movies, much less take center stage.” – Scott Tobias, AV Club
