Coffee and Cigarettes

If I’ve been quiet with my posts lately, it’s because I’ve been trying to decide which of the 11 vignettes in Jim Jarmusch’s star-studded “Coffee and Cigarettes” (2003) I enjoy most.

I’ve come to love this film so much probably because of:

  1. its sheer awkward brilliance;
  2. the photographic feel of stringing together many conceptually (and visually!) linked shorts.

I tried finding a decent clip available online, but there’s not many. I do heartily recommend seeing it if you can, though.
