(In debt a post, again…)
This may be my single favorite scene ever in a feature-length film. If you haven’t seen the Down By Law, essentially what’s going on here is that three losers (John Lurie, Tom Waits, Roberto Benini) are in jail, and go hilariously apeshit. I don’t care to make an essay about it–let alone, start trucking with Adorno and Horkheimer–but I feel sure that around in here somewhere there’s a real insight about when apparently insane behavior is an appropriate and even joyfull response to life.
