  • Available formats
A comic series of short vignettes built on one another to create a cumulative effect, as the characters discuss things as diverse as caffeine popsicles, Paris in the '20s, and the use of nicotine as an insecticide-all the while sitting around sipping coffee and smoking cigarettes. As director Jim 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, if truly observed.

Pretentious, dull and mind numbingly boring! - Coffee and Cigarettes review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

The problem with Jim Jarmusch is that, amongst the tedious bulk of his work there are occasional bits that sow some promise. This keeps causing me to give his movies a try when they are on TV or someone specifically recommends a certain title. Sometimes you do find something interesting. Coffee & Cigarettes however offers no such hope, just a series of painfully dull vignettes. Many of these look as though Jarmusch got friends and told them, sit there, improvise some really tedious dialogue, oh… and work coffee and cigarettes into the conversation. If those were the instructions then the film is pretty successful. Though to the average viewer, after the first few vignettes you'll soon start loosing the will to live. After 15 minutes I just began fast forwarding after a few minutes watching of each vignette, trying to find something worthwhile. If you're a Jim Jarmusch fan I suppose you'll like this, for whatever mysterious reason people like his stuff, but this is for hardcore Jarmusch fans only.

Warning: may cause drowsiness!! - Coffee and Cigarettes review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

This film moves with the pace of an asthmatic ant and requires a huge amount of coffee and cigarettes just to endure it. If you enjoy staring at your navel for prolonged periods of time then this is the movie for you - throw away your sleeping pills and rent this out. However, if you have any sense of your own mortality, invest your precious time more wisely.

Good - Coffee and Cigarettes review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

I liked it. Im a lover of short films and this is a whole bunch of them connected with a common theme. They are just simple little snapshots of human interaction.
