Mystery train by Jim Jarmusch( Visual )

28 editions published between 1989 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three stories unfold during one afternoon and night in Memphis, Tennessee. The first story involves a pair of Japanese teenagers on a pilgrimage to Elvis' home town; in the second story an Italian widow en route to Rome with her husband's coffin encounters Elvis' ghost; in the third story two drifters shoot a liquor store owner during a robbery and spend a nervous night. The stories unfold simultaneously and there are connections but the lives of the characters never cross. Jarmusch treads a path on the margin between the avant garde (anti-narrative, anti-action) and mainstream narrative pleasures. The references (Elvis, Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Joe Strummer) are really non-references, part of the sense of the absence of history. The emptiness seems arbitrary and throwaway

Featuring the ultimate early-eighties L.A. punk soundtrack, this grungily hilarious odyssey is a politically trenchant take on President Reagan's domestic and foreign policy
