Coffee and Cigarettes

I’m not in the mood to write anything these days. Watched Jim Jarmusch’s “Coffee and Cigarette” last week in SF and wanted to write something about it. Was not easy at all! Wanted to see “Night on Earth” again. I loved that movie when I first saw it, a long time ago, on Bravo. I think “Coffee and Cigarettes” has the same structure but with more recurrent themes and dialogues. Feels like Jarmusch has been trying to interconnect the vignettes by using concurrent motifs in all episodes. I did not have the same feeling when I saw “Night on Earth” though. A sheer chaotic world has always been more appealing to me than an orchestrated symphony on chaos and absurdity. Yeah, yeah, whatever…but for now, read this good review here or here.
