MYSTERY TRAIN d. Jim Jarmusch, 1989 presented by Tufnell Park Film Club at The Lord Palmerston (10 JAN 20:00).

“Jim Jarmusch’s cult favourite takes its title from Junior Parker’s 1953 r n b classic (later immortalised by Elvis in 1955). A seedy hotel in Memphis, Tennessee, provides the backdrop for three separate tales, featuring everything from a kitsch-obsessed Japanese couple (Masatoshi Nagase, Yûki Kudô) to a trio of amateur robbers (Joe Strummer, Rick Aviles, Steve Buscemi) who discover the true nature of their relationship during a botched heist. Linking the stories together is the hotel’s eccentric and creepy night clerk (Screamin’ Jay Hawkins) as well as the spirit of Elvis Presley. With all the quirk and cool you’d expect from 1980s Jarmusch, this is a true American indie gem.” (TPFC)
