Look up the films by title on the internet movie database (try http://uk.imdb.com if you're in europe) and you'll probably find not only info about the source texts, but also links via which you can buy the video/dvd.

Truffaut filmed a couple of David Goodis books: _Tirez sur le pianiste_ was based on Goodis's _Down There_ (and I'm sure there's another, but I can't remember off the top of my head what it is). Beneix's _La Lune dans le caniveau_ is based on Goodos's _Moon in the Gutter_

See John O'Thompson, [can't recall the title] on the two films of The Vanishing in Deborah Cartmell and Imelda Whelehan, eds, _Pulping Fictions_ I don't have a copy to hand, but I've reviewed this book and you can check the details here:
