Coffee and Cigarettes
Source: Catholic News Service
Motley mosaic of 11 short films, each involving a pair of actors (including Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Roberto Benigni and Steve Buscemi) sitting around, drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes while conversing on such eclectic subjects as the use of nicotine as an insecticide and Elvis conspiracies. Shot in black-and-white over the past 17 years by maverick director Jim Jarmusch, the smoky slice-of-life minimovies unspool, apart from a few clever vignettes, as exercises in artsy absurdity which, despite the amount of caffeine consumed, provide little stimulation and percolate less interest. Some rough and crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
