Down by Law

Down by Law

Jim Jarmusch / US, 1986 / 107 min.

One of Jim Jarmusch’s best known and best loved films, which is partly owing to Tom Waits’s music (and deadpan acting performance). At the time Waits had just delivered his magnum opus Rain Dogs (1985). A lot of the music on this album was used in the film.
