Various, John Lurie ‎– Mystery Train - A Film By Jim Jarmusch. Mystery Train is a temporal comedy that takes place within one twenty-four hour period in Memphis, Tennessee. the films is a kind of triptych including three separate but connecting stories, like those Japanese films made up of several ghost stories, or the Italian ones consisting of romantic comedies. But in MEmphis it is the Italian who is visited by a ghost, and the Japanese who are romantically inclined " Jim Jarmusch NYC 4/89.

Mystery Train is a 1989 independent anthology film written and directed by Jim Jarmusch and set in Memphis, Tennessee. The film is a triptych of stories involving foreign protagonists, unfolding over the course of the same night.

Director: Jim Jarmusch. Starring: Jun, Mitzuko, Luisa and others. 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, is Memphis. Made with its director’s customary precision and wit, this triptych of stories pays playful tribute to the home of Stax Records, Sun Studio, Graceland, Carl Perkins, and, of course, the King, 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.

This is a shorter film though at only 105 minutes. Sometimes that’s a lot more meaningful than the dialogue itself. So try to get into that head space to pick up on the humour of this film

Directed by Jim Jarmusch. With Masatoshi Nagase, Yûki Kudô, Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Cinqué Lee. Three stories are connected by a Memphis hotel and the spirit of Elvis Presley. Jim Jarmusch interviews the band about their long history, and we see backstage footage from the 1970s and 1980s. Director: Jim Jarmusch. Did You Know? Trivia. This film contains some of the last known footage of Stax Records. Written and directed by the ever-unpredictable Jim Jarmusch, Mystery Train is comprised of three short anecdotes involving foreign tourists in Tennessee. Each story is set in a fleabag Memphis hotel which has been redressed as a "tribute" to Elvis Presley. Story one involves two Japanese tourists whose devotion to '50s American rock music blinds them to everything around them. Story two finds eternal victim Luisa (Nicoletta Braschi) sharing a room with stone-broke Dee Dee (Elizabeth Bracco) and having her problems solved by a spectral vision of the King.
