Mystery train by Jim Jarmusch( Visual )

30 editions published between 1989 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 435 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 of 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

A traffic accident brings Bruno in contact with suicidal Robert (Hanns Zischler). Bruno gives Zischler a ride, and the two become friends. Eventually Zischler decides to give civilization another chance, while Bruno continues his freewheeling ways alone. Along the way, director Wenders makes several trenchant comments about the breakdown of society by showing the number of movie theaters that have either closed down or resorted to showing X-rated films. Prominent German film critic Hanns Zischler plays one of the protagonists."--Allmovie
