Jim Jarmusch United States, 1986

mjgildea's rating of the film Down by Law

After not seeing Down By Law for years, I almost forgot how great it was. The way Tom Waits and John Lurie play off each other only to have Roberto Begnini added into the mix is not only great casting but great chemistry also. The low-key and minimal story along with the quiet bombardment of beautiful photography and direction leave quite possibly the coolest pile of grime I've ever seen.
