Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

Director JIM JARMUSCH followed up his brilliant breakout Stranger Than Paradise with another, equally beloved portrait of loners and misfits in America. When fate lands three hapless men-an unemployed disc jockey (Short Cuts' TOM WAITS), a small-time pimp (Fishing with John's JOHN LURIE), and a strong-willed Italian tourist (Life Is Beautiful's ROBERTO BENIGNI)-in a Louisiana prison, a singular adventure begins. Described by Jarmusch as a "neo-Beat noir comedy," Down by Law is part nightmare and part fairy tale, featuring sterling performances and crisp black-and-white photography by esteemed cinematographer ROBBY MÜLLER (Paris, Texas)
