Product Description

Aloof teenage Japanese tourists, a frazzled Italian widow, and a disgruntled British immigrant all converge in the city of dreams--which, in Mystery Train, from Jim Jarmusch (Stranger Than Paradise, Night on Earth), is Memphis. Made with its director's customary precision and wit, Mystery Train is a triptych of stories that pay playful tribute to the home of Stax Records, Sun Studio, Graceland, Carl Perkins, and, of course, the King himself, who presides over the film like a spirit. Mystery Train is one of Jarmusch's very best movies, a boozy and beautiful pilgrimage to an iconic American ghost town and a paean to the music it gave the world.

By Stephen Bieth TOP 50 REVIEWER on Sept. 16 2012
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
This film makes you feel like your in the American south on a hot summers night. The story focuses on different groups of people going through the same time period with each story finishing with the sound of a gun shot. The last story telling you what happened. The film has a slow pace to it but it's not a slow film. Great cast including Screaming Jay Hawkins and Joe Strummer of the Clash. The film has a great look to it and very off beat sence of humor. If you liked "Down By Law", "Being There" or something like "Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence" this might be your cup of tea. Oh yea and you also get Tom Waits as the DJ on the radio. You never see him but it's hard to miss that voice.

I saw this movie in a theatre the first time many years ago & it "sorta- stuck- in-my-mind" all these years; I bought a copy for a friend of mine ,I wanted to have my own,but I wanted a bluray version for myself, I loved "Screaming Jay Hawkins" red jacket, the off-beat story telling, the Japanese couple, and now after seeing about 4 other Jarmusch movies, I like this one the best thus far.
It's a movie you can watch again & again and discover little details (anyone else notice the cockroaches crawling on the bedspread of the Italian widow ? Something that I experienced in motels in the States in the 70's and can relate to !)

One of Jim's best Aug. 6 2013

A slow burner for sure but marvellous to look at. Quite the experience just to soak into this film. Top notch transfer and supplements.
Wonderful Early Dose of Jarmusch Nov. 22 2013
By Deanna L. Pierce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I saw this years ago when it was in theaters and I instantly started my life long Jarmusch fandom. The cast is eclectic, the humor is often dry and for me, there are STILL a number of lough-out-loud moments in this film. I was so happy to see it was out on Blu-ray that I had to update my collection with it. I mean with a cast including... Joe Strummer, Tom Waits, Steve Buscemi, Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Rick Aviles, Cinqué Lee (brother of Spike), Elizabeth Bracco, Nicoletta Brachi (often seen in her husband Roberto Benigni's movies and along with him in another Jarmusch flick, Down By Law just 3 years earlier also with Waits), and others, it gets an interesting jump start before the first scene (which is pretty quirky-funny from that point on). I love Jarmusch's work and this started it all for me.

I hardly ever watch a movie twice, never mind purchase one Sept. 12 2011
By Boney Gumbo Jefferson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
This is an exception. I bought it on VHS, then DVD, and now the Blu-Ray special release. Oh yeah, and the soundtrack on CD.

I am not a film or music critic, so I won't try to shoot for lofty, heady adjectives. Suffice to say that this film is so rich in nuance that it must be watched over and over...the masses won't get it, but anyone who landed at this review must be interested in the film and will probably enjoy it.

Danger Will Robinson!!! Elvis has left the building.... May 1 2012
By Dr. Morbius - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Great film! Three slightly interlocked stories that have nothing to do with anything and everything to do with Elvis--or maybe not--anyway, Memphis is the star of this film and there is something for everyone....including subtitles! The first 40 minutes are mostly in Japanese, but don't let that bother you none--there is a small part in Italian as well. Most of it is in English, though, so you'll be fine in the long run. Well, some of you will anyway...after all, Elvis permeates the whole thing....great a/v on the blu-ray and decent extras....Criterion!!!....get it....
