Between the wry trademark Jarmusch deadpan humor (and there is quite a bit of it) and the great cast, this one is worth a look, particularly for those already in the Jarmusch camp.

Coffee and Cigarettes feels thin and slight at times.... But at its best, the movie achieves the charm and delight that underscores Jarmusch's best work

Arranged in short episodes, each composed entirely of awkward and embarassed conversation between midlevel celebs, Coffee and Cigarettes entertains fitfully.

there are some amazing standout performances (Cate Blanchett, Alfred Molina and Steve Coogan). Otherwise, it's just a bit of diverting fluff.

It's endearing, plotless and strange.

Ordinary people don't generally go for Jarmusch's quirky films, and while this won't earn him a huge mainstream audience, it is accessible in a harmless, unpretentious way.

The segments are uneven, some so wispy they all but evaporate off the screen, but the ones that work prove once again that Jarmusch is one of the most dryly amusing, smartest and original independent filmmakers around.
