Down by law on Blu-ray

I don't know if this was available somewhere already, but Criterion is releasing a Blu-ray version of Down by law, the black-and-white Jim Jarmusch movie in which Tom Waits stars alongside John Lurie and Roberto Benigni.

Apart from the inevitable outtakes, there seems to be some interesting stuff among the extra's: a music video for Tom Waits’ cover of Cole Porter’s It’s all right with me (directed by Jim Jarmusch), recordings of phone conversations between Jarmusch and Waits, Benigni, and Lurie and an isolated music track.

Street date: July 17.

UPDATE: Looks like most of the extra features were available already on previous dvd releases.

Jockey full of bourbon and some clips:

It's all right with me:

Wherever you go to visit around the world, the blu ray technology has reached almost all parts of the world. Whether you go for flights to Johannesburg or visit China you will tend to see it there.

Hey Mark, how about a boat ride to Singapore instead?
