Film Comment - 06/01/1988
"...[The film] is American melting pot mythology the way Jim Jarmusch might reinvent it..."
Los Angeles Times - 05/04/1988
"...An adorable comic fable.....Hilarious and touching....It also offers a renewed, endearingly quirky version of America as the land of opportunity..."
It's just a greasy spoon and a rusty gas pump in the middle of the Mojave Desert, but to a mysterious, stranded Bavarian woman and a few mismatched regulars, the Bagdad Cafe becomes a magical piece of paradise. Academy Award Nominations: Best Song ("Calling You").
