...has the same weird beauty as a Van Morrison vocal, a mannered eccentricity that somehow cracks open and lays bear the stuttering, fervid heart of what could have been banal material.

... his unhurried rhythms give the deadpan mix of quirky Americana, pop culture, and cinematic poetry a quietly lived-in quality...

Jarmuschs films are usually about the gradual accretion of small details than the articulation of a conventional narrative.

(O)nce it plants itself within, it remains a vivid cultural memory.

Jarmusch finds visual poetry in the run-down, the ignored, and the decrepit, especially via the use of neon colors cutting into the darkness and the gray

The humor is here. It's so deadpan that it sneaks up on you.

The three-part structure of Mystery Train is still a bit shambling and slight, but there's an undeniable air of deadpan cool that permeates the film and gives it a haunting sense of place.

Eye for Film

[in] Jarmusch's strange elegy for faded Americana... nostalgia reigns, love is lost, death is never far away, and everything is haunted by the ghost of Elvis, "young and beautiful looking, like in 1956".

Jarmusch's mildly entertaining film tells three stories that take place at the same time but are told sequentially (end-to-end) rather than through intercutting, which is Hollywood's prevalent norm.

Happily, Jarmusch's formal inventiveness is framed by a rare flair for zany entertainment ...

Intriguing, if hit-or-miss comedy from Jarmusch.

An experimental film that went 'pulp' before 'fiction.'

This film offers an entertaining slice of modern life in the town celebrated as Elvis Presley's home.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

Jarmusch doesn't really seem as interested in telling stories as painting portraits, developing rich characters and weaving complex texture, so that he reveals to his audience an Americana that is with us every day but probably not visible to most of us.

Certainly Jarmusch brings back his favorite predilections (and probably always will), but he makes his passengers interesting, kicks the plot off the platform whenever possible and keeps the way ahead refreshingly uncertain.
