One of my all time favorite comedies

Club Paradise--Jimmy Cliff and Robin Williams and a cast of others.

Rockers out of Jamaica might be the best reggae movie with of a ton of reggae musicians then we have The Harder they Come with Jimmy Cliff

Many great Tom Waits roles. Haven't seen anyone post Renfield in Bram Stoker's Dracula yet.

Another Alex Cox film - 'Repo Man', featured Zander Schloss of Circle Jerks, Weirdos & Joe Strummer's Latino Rockabilly War...
and (The) Circle Jerks as a terrible cabaret band:

Another for Two Lane Blacktop.

They played it late at night on the BBC in the early '80's here in the UK.
Just the once, with a remarkable, if slightly pretentious introduction by a guy called Philip French.

Taped copies were treated like religious relics, passed around and worshiped with awe and reverence.

It was a skewed vision of an America we never got to see, so different to the usual diet of sit coms, cop shows and tired westerns.

It reminds me so much of being a young teenager.

Have it on Blu-Ray now and it's still a remarkable film.

I don't think anyone has yet mentioned Chris Isaak who was in one of my favorites, "That Thing You Do" as well as "The Silence Of The Lambs" and quite a few others.
