Down by Law

Double Feature with STRANGER THAN PARADISE (7:00)

1986 • dir Jim Jarmusch w/Tom Waits, John Lurie, Roberto Benigni • 107 min • 35mm

Three slacker cellmates surprise themselves by successfully escaping a New Orleans prison and then realize they have no plan for what to do next. With effortlessly charming performances by cult musicians John Lurie and Tom Waits plus future-Oscar-winner Roberto Benigni in his American debut, DOWN BY LAW is like a neo-noir from an alternate universe.
