Description & Features+

Director Jim Jarmusch followed up his brilliant breakout Stranger Than Paradise with another, equally beloved portrait of loners and misfits in America. When fate lands three hapless men—an unemployed disc jockey (Short Cuts’ Tom Waits), a small-time pimp (Fishing with John’s John Lurie), and a strong-willed Italian tourist (Life Is Beautiful’s Roberto Benigni)—in a Louisiana prison, a singular adventure begins. Described by Jarmusch as a “neo-Beat noir comedy,” Down by Law is part nightmare and part fairy tale, featuring sterling performances and crisp black-and-white photography by esteemed cinematographer Robby Müller (Paris, Texas). DIRECTOR-APPROVED BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES • High-definition digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack • Thoughts and reflections on the making of the film from director Jim Jarmusch in 2002 • Interview with director of photography Robby Müller from 2002 • Footage from the 1986 Cannes Film Festival, including a press conference featuring Jarmusch and actors John Lurie, Roberto Benigni, and Nicoletta Braschi, and an interview with Lurie, with commentary • Sixteen outtakes • Music video for Tom Waits’s cover of Cole Porter’s “It’s All Right with Me,” directed by Jarmusch • Q&A with Jarmusch in which he responds to fans’ questions • Recordings of phone conversations between Jarmusch and Waits, Benigni, and Lurie • Production Polaroids and location stills • Isolated music track • Optional French dub track, featuring Benigni • Trailer • PLUS: An essay by critic Luc Sante
