A story about this — 2 years ago
The B&W film. The music. The traveling camera. The scenes of old New Orleans. The trampy girls. The police entrapments. The isolation. The tension. The slow, deliberate pacing. The crazy Italian murderer. The cramped prison cell. The ice cream chant. The escape. The chase through the swamp. The diner. The serendipity. The no nonsense ending. The poetry. The award-winning director, Jim Jarmusch. The actors, Tom Waits, John Lurie, Roberto Benigni, Ellen Barkin, Billie Neal. Only a few good reasons to watch this. Classic.
