Down by law by Jim Jarmusch( Visual )

43 editions published between 1986 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 920 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Director Jim Jarmusch followed up his brilliant breakout film Stranger Than Paradise with another, equally beloved portrait of loners and misfits in the American landscape. When fate brings together three hapless men--an unemployed disc jockey (Tom Waits), a small-time pimp (John Lurie), and a strong-willed Italian tourist (Roberto Benigni)--in a Louisiana prison, a singular adventure ensues. Described by Jarmusch as a "neo-Beat noir comedy," Down by Law is part nightmare and part fairy tale, featuring sterling performances and crisp black-and-white cinematography by the esteemed Robby Müller." -- criterion.com/films/719-down-by-law

Mystery train by Jim Jarmusch( Visual )

25 editions published between 1989 and 2013 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 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

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
