||Synopsis: Eleven separate vignettes are presented. In each, celebrities, playing semi-fictionalized versions of themselves (with the exception of the characters of various wait staff, and one actor playing a lookalike cousin of herself), meet in a food service establishment with coffee/tea and cigarettes involved. Beyond the topic of discussion that brought them together, they often talk directly about coffee and cigarettes, more often that coffee and cigarettes, and by association caffeine and nicotine, are not healthy, especially if they are the only things constituting lunch. Other recurring themes include the Lee family, cousinhood, celebrity worship, the connection between the medical and musical careers, and Nikola Tesla's belief that the Earth is a conductor of acoustic resonance. In all cases, the coming together for coffee/tea and smokes acts as a bridge to overcome disagreements, and/or makes uncomfortable situations less uncomfortable. Written by Huggo

Talk about an appropriate title.
This is a collection of 11 short stories directed by indie stalwart Jim
Jarmusch ("Strangers in Paradise", "Ghost Dog: The Way Of The Samurai") that
have been filmed over the last 18 years, all of which involve two or more
characters simply sitting at a table, conversing over...yep, coffee and
In the hands of a lesser director that might be extremely boring, but
Jarmusch is a master of subtle understatement and great deadpan humor. This
may be one of the funniest movies you've ever seen in which no one cracks a
Almost all the actors play themselves, which adds a meta-theatrical,
slightly surreal touch to it all.
Among my favorite stories are one in which an overly eager Alfred Molina has
a surprise in store for coolly arrogant fellow actor Steve Coogan and a
great one in which Cate Blanchett plays both herself and her jealous cousin
Shelby. Then there's the one where Tom Waits and Iggy Pop meet in a dive bar
to discuss things and have a smoke (to celebrate quitting smoking), Jack and
Meg White of the White Stripes experimenting with a Tesla coil, and in the
funniest casting, RZA and GZA of the Wu-Tang Clan sharing some downtime
with, of all people, Bill Murray. I also like the one with Spike Lee's twin
siblings, Joie and Cinque, dealing with an invasive waiter (a hilarious
Almost all the stories are excellent, but there are three that are very
forgettable and pretty unnecessary, and they're all in a row, which disrupts
the flow of the film. If those three had been taken out, "Coffee and
Cigarettes" would be just about perfect, but it's still really good. And
those three are out of the way in the first half, anyway.
For the first hour the movie feels mainly just like fun. Straight-faced,
deadpan, B&W comedy just like "Strangers In Paradise". But as it goes on,
and strange connections are made between the stories, it seems to have a
sudden dreamlike depth to it.
The final story in particular, in which two old men in a dark room (Bill
Rice and Taylor Mead) discuss life while on a coffee break that feels like
it'll last forever, has a distinct "Waiting For Godot" feel and ends the
movie on a perfect note of haunting, existential sadness.
It was at that point that I realized I hadn't just watched a string of jokey
short stories, but a string of jokey short stories that say a lot about
human nature and life in general.
And if that's not enough to interest you, how often do you get to see Tom
Waits and Iggy Pop have a conversation? Or RZA, GZA, and Bill
