Movie Reviews

Variety - 10/10 by Variety Staff The Jim Jarmusch penchant for off-the-wall characters and odd situations is very much in evidence.
Daily Telegraph (UK) - 10/10 by Martin Chilton Down by Law is a delight, right down to the unexpected last scene.
Antagony & Ecstasy - 10/10 by Tim Brayton Every single incident in the film is meaningful.
Total Film - 10/10 by Emma Johnston Mutual irritation merges into grudging friendship, and the wit manages to be both broad and smart, soulful and silly, subtle and raucous, all at the same time.
Filmcritic.com - 8/10 by Matt Langdon If you don't know anything about Jarmusch, this DVD is a great place to start.
ToxicUniverse.com - 8/10 by Jeremiah Kipp At 90 minutes, it felt entirely too long, but would I have wanted Jarmusch to trim it down at all? That would have killed his best jokes.
Chicago Sun-Times - 8/10 by Roger Ebert A true original that kind of grows on you.
Little White Lies - 8/10 by Vadim Rizov Down By Law is oddly heart-warming, magnifying moments of unexpected camaraderie between kindred spirits who don't immediately ID each other as such.
Radio Times - 8/10 by David Parkinson Jim Jarmusch's uneven but stylish comédie noire is an astute mixture of prison picture, road movie and downbeat screwball.
Washington Post - 8/10 by Paul Attanasio It's not that the movie doesn't move fast enough, it's that while it dawdles, it doesn't give you enough to dwell on.
EmanuelLevy.Com - 8/10 by Emanuel Levy More cheerful than Stranger Than Paradise, this movie plays a reversal on the Hollywood comedy in which a high-spirited American usually brings joy to a foreigner; here it's Italian Roberto Benigni.
Movie Metropolis - 7/10 by Christopher Long Perhaps it's not what you expect from a prison movie, but Jim Jarmusch has always adhered to his own personal vision.
