I voted for Never Have Seen One of Films.

Though, it's not exactly true.  I admit, I haven't seen all of them.  The ones I've seen in their entirety are Broken Flowers and Coffee & Cigarettes.  I like them both.  I've seen parts of Ghost Dog, Dead Man, Night on Earth, and Mystery Train.  I just haven't gotten around to seeing them as a whole film nor could find the time to.  I should start doing a marathon of his films for next year.

I voted for Mystery Train then instantly realized that I forgot about Dead Man.

Also I know a lot of people did not like Neil Young's score.

who!?!  i'm gonna fight them.

That's how I feel. Best Soundtrack of the 90's.

Down By Law gets my vote. 

Love how Jarmusche just gives all three characters plenty of room to breathe throughout the entire movie...watching Tom Waits and Roberto Benigni bring these characters to life in an extremely sparse script is something to behold.  Great to see camera framed right, and staying still, letting the actor's shine.
