“It’s the best thing Mr. Jarmusch has done to date.” – Vincent Canby, New York Times
“The best thing about “Mystery Train” is that it takes you to an America you feel you ought to be able to find for yourself, if you only knew where to look.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
A seedy hotel in Memphis, Tennessee, provides the backdrop for three separate tales, featuring everything from a kitsch-obsessed Japanese couple (Masatoshi Nagase, Youki Kudoh) to a trio of amateur robbers (Joe Strummer, Rick Aviles, Steve Buscemi) who discover the true nature of their relationship during a botched heist. Linking the stories together is the hotel’s eccentric and creepy night clerk (Screamin’ Jay Hawkins) as well as the spirit of Elvis Presley.
Dir. Jim Jarmusch. 113 min. 1989.
