    Small Screen | Jarmusch on Criterion, Doc Favs "Collapse," "Burma VJ," "Gasland" in the Living Room

    Writing in 1989, the New York Times' Vincent Canby said of Jim Jarmusch's then new film, "Mr. Jarmusch's 'Mystery Train,' though photographed in bright, primary colors by Robby Muller, has the same kind of dour, discordant charm that characterized 'Stranger Than Paradise.'

But when a former high school rival returns to town for the Christmas holiday, his presence prompts her to reconsider what she wants—and needs—to do for herself. There is a gentle sadness running through The N...
