Down by law by Jim Jarmusch( Visual )

107 editions published between 1986 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 1,241 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." --

Rumble fish by Francis Ford Coppola( Visual )

9 editions published between 1983 and 2017 in English and German and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this deeply personal tale of estrangement and reconciliation between two rebellious brothers, set in a dreamlike and timeless Tulsa, Francis Ford Coppola gives mythic dimensions to intimate, painful emotions. The director's "art film for teenagers" was his second adaptation of young-adult novelist S. E. Hinton's work in a single year, after the more classically styled The Outsiders. Graced with a remarkable cast headed by Matt Dillon, Mickey Rourke, and Diane Lane; haunting black-and-white visuals that hark back to German expressionism and forward to Coppola's own Tetra; and a powerful percussive score by Steward Copeland that underlines the movie's romantic fatalism, Rumble Fish pulsates with genuine love and dread"--Container
