Down by Law ★★★

Jim Jarmusch is a filmmaker I always respect even if I don’t always appreciate what he’s trying to do. This movie is the perfect example. I don’t really know what the point is and it’s very possible there is no point at all. 

But at the same time what he’s created here is a wholly unique experience. I’ve seen all three of these character types before but never all together and never in a movie as sparse and simple as this. 

It’s a frequently funny comedy about some very different people spending time together and not much else. I’m not sure this kind of thing is for me but I sure as hell respect the weirdness.
