BY LAW (1986):
Jim Jarmusch's classic "neo-Beat noir comedy". When two
men (Tom Waits and John Lurie) are falsely accused of crimes and thrown
in a Louisiana jail, fate brings them a strange, strong-willed Italian
tourist (Roberto Benigni), and they decide to break out. Jarmusch's
portrait of misfits in the American landscape features excellent
performances by the three leads, and crisp black-and-white
cinematography by the esteemed Robby Müller.
