Aloof teenage Japanese tourists, a frazzled Italian widow, and a disgruntled British immigrant all converge in the city of dreams—which, in Mystery Train, is Memphis. Made with Jarmusch’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 a boozy and beautiful pilgrimage to an iconic American town and a paean to the music it gave the world. Contains mature content, including sexual situations, violence, and drug references.
