Criterion Collection’s Blu-ray Discs for June, 2010

Criterion today announced it’s Blu-ray Disc lineup for the month of June, 2010. Check out all the details for the upcoming titles: Mystery Train; Close-Up; Red Desert; Everlasting Moments; and The Leopard.

MYSTERY TRAIN
Aloof teenage Japanese tourists, a frazzled Italian widow, and a disgruntled British immigrant all converge in the city of dreams—which, in Mystery Train, from Jim Jarmusch (Stranger Than Paradise, Night on Earth), is Memphis. Made with its director’s customary precision and wit, Mystery Train is a triptych of stories that pay playful tribute to the home of Stax Records, Sun Studio, Graceland, Carl Perkins, and, of course, the King himself, who presides over the film like a spirit.Mystery Train is one of Jarmusch’s very best movies, a boozy and beautiful pilgrimage to an iconic American ghost town and a paean to the music it gave the world.
