Reviews
Mine: Interesting, often funny. But you get to the end and are left saying, "OK, now what". It never pulls together completely. Still worth seeing.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Third feature by writer-director Jarmusch is intriguing, amusing, and ever so slight, a look at three losers who wind up in jail together--and then make a break for it. Really comes alive when Italian comic Benigni turns up. Slow-moving, strikingly photographed (in black & white) by Robby Muller on location in Louisiana. Costars Lurie and Waits also provide music on the soundtrack.
