Now I want Coffee and Cigarettes (by Jim Jarmusch)

Shot in black and white, they feature a great cast that includes Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, Iggy Pop, Tom Waits, GZA and RZA of Wu-Tang Clan, Steve Buscemi and Alfred Molina. They babble and prattle about anything and everything, often carrying on bizarre and extended conversations even when their characters have little to say.

Jarmusch said the focus on idle coffee breaks is akin to his film Night on Earth, which plays out entirely during five separate taxi rides taking place at the same time in cities around the globe. Cate Blanchett plays opposite herself, as a blonde movie star who's self-reflexively rather embarrassed by her fame, and as the star's resentful and slightly whorish brunette cousin. If we needed further proof of Blanchett's great acting gifts, here it is in miniature form. -indiewire

About us

Best described as a Murakami detox support group, we're all fans of the quirkily brilliant Japanese author, Haruki Murakami, and writing about such things as films we've seen recently and books we're reading (not to mention meandering musings on the man's work, of course) helps us to pass time while waiting for the next book from Haruki-baby.
