Coffee and Cigarettes: A Jim Jarmusch Movie

Coffee and Cigarettes is a Jim Jarmusch Presentation

An online search for movies ABOUT COFFEE -- not movies with coffee in them -- turns up few options, with Coffee and Cigarettes perhaps the only film really dedicated to the subject.

Writer and director Jim Jarmusch presents a comedic film shot in black and white over a number of years with a group of actors. Alfred Molina and Steve Coogan share a very funny encounter, Tom Waits and Iggy Pop bump heads in a diner and Cate Blanchett plays both herself and a cousin. Most of the scenes are improvised by the actors and filmed with only a few takes.

Coffee and Cigarettes is not actually a 'movie' but rather a series of eleven short stories, which I have yet to see. Despite being neither a coffee drinker nor a cigarette smoker, I have to admit that I am intriquged when I watch the video because of the actors who participated in this project. You might be, too. On this page, you will find the trailer for Coffee and Cigarettes and more information about the movie.

What They Say About Coffee and Cigarettes

From Amazon customer reviews.

It's pretty obvious that Coffee and Cigarettes is not going to be a film for everyone. But amongst those who did like it, Amazon customer reviewers like Kim Anehall said that "Cate Blanchett's dual performance is dazzling as she presents a rich, famous and successful performer and her envious poor cousin." TheSeventhSon said that the "Tom Waits & Iggy Pop scene is brilliantly awkward" and A. Harley said that the "Roberto Beningi gave the most hilarious performance he has ever seen."

Of course, I would be remiss if I did not say that some viewers found Coffee and Cigarettes BORING.

      Actually since coffee and cigarettes are two of my most favorite things, I would probably love this movie! :)
