Down by Law (1986)

Island Pictures
Directed by Jim Jarmusch
My rating: 2.5 stars out of 4
(Blu-ray, Criterion Collection)

Three men end up together in a New Orleans jail for different reasons. Months of boredom with no hope for release lead them to escape. After traversing the nearby swampland they end up at a small restaurant run by a friendly Italian girl. Ever so slight drama is mostly a character study bolstered by striking black and white photography by Robby Müller.
