Down By Law Criterion Blu-ray

Down By Law Criterion Blu-rayDown By Law – 1986
80’s New Orleans crime comedy directed by Jim Jarmusch and starring Tom Waits, John Lurie and Roberto Benigni and now presented by Criterion on Blu-ray.
In Down By Law, DJ Zack and pimp Jack end up in prison for being too laid-back to avoid being framed for crimes they didn’t commit.
They end up sharing a cell with eccentric Italian optimist Roberto, whose limited command of the English language is both entertaining and infuriating -but rather more useful to them is the fact that Roberto knows an escape route.
