Coffee and Cigarettes Movie by Jim Jarmusch
Coffee and Cigarettes, a 2003 movie written and directed by Jim Jarmusch, is a compilation of eleven vignettes shot in black and white, in which two or three people have conversations over coffee and cigarettes. The scenes feature actors and musicians, usually playing themselves, but in fictional scripted (or sometimes improvised) encounters. The vignettes are often humorous, sometimes sad, often ironic, and sometimes profound. The cast is extraordinary: it’s a real treat to see these performers, many of whom are well known, struggle to connect with another person as we all do.
