Jim Jarmusch of the ultra hip jazz group "The Lounge Lizards" begins an incredible body of work with this Black and White story of two losers and a foreign cousin one has to entertain. The story is good but what makes this film great are the deadpan performances, the subtleties, stunning shots and the fact that most of this movie is shot with long shots (thus eliminating the cutaways and close ups that cost money). Released to independent film houses in 1984, this movie revived the American Indy in many ways.
