I have always meant to see that film. I always forget that it is directed by Johnathon Demme. Have you seen Crazy Mama?

I've never heard of it - is it by Demme as well?
See "Swimming" - fucking amazing.

Yeah, it's a Demme film. Cloris Leachman is in it. I enjoyed it. I think it's also the first time Tak Fujimoto and Demme teamed up, but I'm not sure. Now if you really wanna' see some early work, rent "Chatterbox," that's one of Fujimoto's first.
Heeee. I won't tell you what it's about. But check out the cinematography.

They both sound interesting, but I almost never rent. May as well tell me.

I checked with the university library, turns out they have [i]Down by Law[/i] only on laserdisc. That's so stupid!
Anyway, they have another one of Jarmusch's films, [i]Mystery Train[/i], on video. Have you seen it?

Laserdisc? Does anyone even have those anymore? :p
No, I haven't seen "Mystery Train" but I would like to.

I'm not a Jarmusch fan, but I remember making a mental note to rent [i]Down By Law[/i] whenever I got around to it.
I thought [i]Dead Man[/i] was dreadfully slow and dull, but I enjoyed [i]Ghost Dog[/i].
And I loved [i]The Killing Fields[/i] -- I wonder why Sam Waterston seemed to disappear up until the Law & Order TV series.

"Down By Law" isn't a great movie, but it's enjoyable.
I should see "The Killing Fields" - I saw clips of Gray's role but that's it. I remember when it came out, it made quite a stir.

[i]The Killing Fields[/i] has an epic feel to it. As a stranger to third-world environs such as those in the movie, I can't see me surviving in a similar situation as the main character, or any of the American characters, for that matter.

Yeah, same here, although you never know how you're going to react in a situation till it happens. I'd like to think I would be strong, but I also worry that I'd just die on the spot.

I really like Down By Law, I saw it in my history of film class. Swmming to cambodia sounds really interesting

1980s is considered history?? Jeez, I feel old! :p
I know you'll like it, suley. Let me know what you think when you see it.

WE went from the very first films all the way to the present. Down By Law was what we watched while discussing Independent pictures.
I feel old whenever I teach, mainly because the World Series comes up and I realize a good portion of my students were born in 1986 and thus they weren't able to watch last time the Red Sox where in the world series.

Ah, well that makes more sense. :D
That's tough, isn't it? When you hit that cultural gap...How old are you, suley?

I thought Down by the Law was Down With Love at first. Oops.

I've heard "Down with Love" is all right.

It had a ROFL scene involving male pantyhose. :D

That would be "man-tyhose" I believe. :D
