Ever gone fishing with John?

Well, here is your chance. You can be taken away on a fishing trip with Mr. John Lurie in the DVD Fishing With John. And to make things even more fun… Matt Dillon comes along on at trip to Costa Rica and Tom Waits joins him while fishing for snapper in Jamaica. This gem of a TV series, with directing, writing and music done by Lurie, is from 1991 and is available from The Criterion Collection. The deadpan dialog and lack of knowledge of actual fishing leaves these trips as something to be seen. The drowsy lull of the narrator and the whole show itself is reminiscent of the fishing shows you’d wake up at 3am to find on the tube, only it’s John Lurie and a friend fishing each time, and you’re sucked in and can’t stop watching. Jim Jarmusch, Willem Dafoe and Dennis Hopper also appear on episodes of Fishing With John. File under: hilarious.
