Der amerikanische Freund = American friend by Wim Wenders( Visual )

41 editions published between 1976 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film is a result of Wender's enthusiasm for Patricia Highsmith's novels and also of his fascination with America which preoccupied him until his return to Berlin to make Wings of Desire. The plot, concerning forgery rackets, remains subsidiary to mood. Amidst moving trains and changing landscapes the new world of the American gangster invades the Germany of the dying artisan Ganz. Wenders said that he equates American film directors with gangsters and here cast directors Hopper, Nick Ray and Sam Fuller as the art racketeers

Mystery train by Jim Jarmusch( Visual )

27 editions published between 1989 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 420 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

On the other hand, Peter James neatly sidesteps the problems caused by the cyclorama and creates a wider view of the windswept dusty cafe

"Rüdiger Vogler plays Bruno, an itinerant movie-projector repairman, who tools about the dusty roads along the East-West border of Germany in search of work. A traffic accident brings Bruno in contact with suicidal Robert (Hanns Zischler). Bruno gives Zischler a ride, and the two become friends. Eventually Zischler decides to give civilization another chance, while Bruno continues his freewheeling ways alone. Along the way, director Wenders makes several trenchant comments about the breakdown of society by showing the number of movie theaters that have either closed down or resorted to showing X-rated films. Prominent German film critic Hanns Zischler plays one of the protagonists."--Allmovie
Barfly by Barbet Schroeder( Visual )

9 editions published between 1987 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before The Wrestler took the world by storm, Barfly was considered Mickey Rourke's most passionate and gritty performance. This dark tale of drunkenness, violence and self loathing reflects his brooding persona perfectly. Add to this the fact that his charecter is a phenomenally talented but self destructive artist and you'd swear the role had been written for him. Barfly is the fictionalised autobiography by cult writer and underground hero, Charles Bukowski and is an unflinching portrayal of life one step up from the gutter. Rourke's performance as a self-hating, mean spirited anti-hero is dark and brutal but retains a kind of selfish, desperate beauty, especially in respect to the doomed relationship that develops between him and a fellow lost soul"--Container
