Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: 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.
Fresh: The Jim Jarmusch penchant for off-the-wall characters and odd situations is very much in evidence.
Fresh: Pure pleasure for comedy connoisseurs.
Fresh: A true original that kind of grows on you.
