Movie of the week

Coffee and cigarettes directed by Jim Jarmush (2003) is a movie that consist 11 short stories in black and white which all share coffee and cigarettes as a common tread. A bunch of famous people meet up for coffee and cigarettes to discuss obsessions, joys, addiction to life, music, fame among many other subjects that links all the short stories together in a brilliant way.

Steve Buscemi, Iggy Pop, Tom Waits, Cate Blanchett, Jack and Meg White, GZA RZA (Wu- Tang clan) and Bill Murray is just a few of the cast that play with their thoughts and of course coffee and cigarettes.

One of my favourite short stories is "SOMEWHERE IN CALIFORNIA” with Iggy Pop and Tom waits. Of course because those two are amazing artists but also because the scene shows two old rockers trying to get along but only ends up in awkward conversations and silence. It’s just fucking awesome!
