The Frida Cinema continues its weeklong, eight-film celebration of pioneer independent filmmaker Jim Jarmusch as we screen the 1986 jailhouse comedy-drama Down by Law!

Saturday June 4 / 3:30pm
Sunday June 5 / 4pm

Set in a seedy New Orleans summer, Down by Law details the meeting of three unlikely convicts and their just as unlikely escape. Zack (Tom Waits) is an out-of-work DJ falsely accused of murder when a body is found in the trunk of a stolen car he’d been hired to drive. Jack (John Lurie) is a pimp set up by a competitor. These two unfortunate souls are locked in a cell with Roberto (Roberto Benigni), a cheerful Italian tourist who happens to have killed a man, and despite his limited English, has an incessant need for conversation.

Jarmusch’s wry, minimal style dominates, accompanied by the brilliant, thoughtful camerawork of cinematographer Robbie Müller. Down by Law also features musician Tom Waits, who, in addition to giving voice to Jarmusch’s incredible wit, contributed several songs from his then-recent “Rain Dogs” to John Lurie’s score.

“The excitement (of Down by Law) comes from the realization that we are seeing a true film maker at work, using film to create a narrative that couldn’t exist on the stage or the printed page of a novel.” — Vincent Canby, New York Times

“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
