Jim Jarmusch's movies are worth repeat viewings. Get going if you haven't seen these offbeat treasures with great soundtracks frequently including Tom Waits and Screamin' Jay Hawkins. They are among the best films of the 1990s world-wide.

Here are a few that are in, or coming, to the collection:

Down by Law: a man framed by the police goes on the road and takes up with a charming couple played by Italian comedy duo and spouses Roberto Benini and Nicholetta Braschi (of Life is Beautiful) fame. Tom Waits also stars.

Broken Flowers, starring Bill Murray. Murray plays a quiet man, searching for a son he may or may not have had as he revisits past relationships. It's an unusual and thoughtful road movie, featuring eastern American countryside.
