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

19 editions published between 1976 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film is a result of Wenders' 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 moving trains and changing landscapes and the new world of the American gangster invade 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 )

24 editions published between 1989 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 416 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
Repo man by Alex Cox( Visual )

About a weathered repo man in desolate downtown Los Angeles, and the nihilistic middle-class punk he takes under his wing. The job becomes more than either of them bargained for when they get involved in reclaiming a mysterious, and other worldly, Chevy Malibu with a hefty reward attached to it. Featuring the ultimate early-eighties L.A. punk soundtrack, this grungily hilarious odyssey is a politically trenchant take on President Reagan₂s domestic and foreign policy

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
