The setup is simple: different groups of people (some of whom like each other, some who don't and some that are indifferent) meet somewhere to smoke, drink coffee and talk. It's the simple pleasures of life make it worth living, even if those pleasures are addictive and very bad for you— just one of the many threads linking the vignettes in this very chill anthology. Others include testing the bonds of familial relations, professional jealousy, self delusion and dreaming really fast. Jarmusch originally made Coffee and Cigarettes as three short films in 1986, 1989 and 1993, which are included here with eight new pieces that sit comfortably alongside one another on a long slow journey to nowhere in particular.

Why See This Film

Bill Murray, GZA and RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan, Jack and Meg White of The White Stripes, Steve Buscemi, Cate Blanchett, Roberto Benigni, Steven Wright and more: all the stars are out tonight, folks. The 1993-shot segment film (featuring Iggy Pop and Tom Waits) won the Short Film Palme d’Or at Cannes, and the encounter between fictionalised versions of an earnest Alfred Molina and insecure Steve Coogan is a masterpiece of awkward one-upmanship that's essential viewing for any fans of Coogan's The Trip.
