Der amerikanische Freund = American friend by Patricia Highsmith( Visual )

This film is a result of Wenders' enthusiasm for Patricia Highsmith's novels and also of his fascination with America which preoccupied him until his return to Berlin to make Wings of Desire. The moving trains and changing landscapes and the new world of the American gangster invade the Germany of the dying artisan Ganz. Wenders said that he equates American film directors with gangsters and here cast directors Hopper, Nick Ray and Sam Fuller as the art racketeers

Mystery train by Jim Jarmusch( Visual )

27 editions published between 1989 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 420 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
