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.

The Jim Jarmusch penchant for off-the-wall characters and odd situations is very much in evidence.

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.

Its soul is the same as all Jarmusch films, but here he digs a bit deeper into the roots of his own methodology and that to which he is opposed.

Down By Law is oddly heart-warming, magnifying moments of unexpected camaraderie between kindred spirits who don't immediately ID each other as such.
