About the Movie

Coffee and Cigarettes is a comic series of short vignettes that build on one another to create a cumulative effect as the characters discuss things as diverse as caffeine popsicles, Paris in the twenties, and the use of nicotine as an insecticide, all the while sitting around sipping coffee and smoking cigarettes. As Jarmusch delves into the normal pace of our world from an extraordinary angle, he shows just how absorbing the obsessions, joys, and addictions of life can be.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The draggy ones make you restless while the best ones, like the movie's title ingredients, provide a buzz that doesn't last long enough. – Mark Caro, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Myself, I loved it -- as much for the self-conscious banality and surreal pointlessness of its dialogue, which unravels over the course of 11 more or less unrelated vignettes, as for its austerely retro black-and-white photography. – Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: Sometimes movies tire us by trying too relentlessly to pound us with their brilliance and energy. Here is a movie pitched at about the energy level of a coffee break. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: The short form looks like a genuine alternative in Jarmusch's hands because of what he does with it. – Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

Coffee and Cigarettes

A good film. The RZA, Tom Waits, and Roberto Beigni were great in it, among others. The only bad part of the film was with Jack White and that other girl with the last name of White. Both were poor actors and shouldn't be deserving to be in the same film as RZA, Iggy, and Tom Waits. Other than that, the movie was great and I would suggest watching it.

Half good half bad

This movie is night and day, with some of the scenes producing amazing work, while others are tired and childish like a teenage writing their first poetry after staying up for two days straight. This is definitely a movie to fast foward through the bad bits.

Tom Waits meets Iggy Pop

... which may be the coolest thing ever to happen in a movie
