... an anthology of curiosities, some more curious than others, wound around a diverse cast paired off for random ramblings over caffeine and nicotine.

Independent filmmaking grandfather Jim Jarmusch conceives the laziest and most tiring movie of his career with a series of vignettes calculated around celebrities talking over coffee and cigarettes.

A little less than half of the film worked for me, which cannot justify a recommendation.

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.

Often gorgeous and poetic film.

No matter how respected a celebrity is, watching him or her jabber about caffeine's stimulative power is not revealing.

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
| Original Score: 3/5

Arranged in short episodes, each composed entirely of awkward and embarassed conversation between midlevel celebs, Coffee and Cigarettes entertains fitfully.
| Original Score: 3/5

Falls flat as often as it makes magic, the cumulative effect as comforting as a night spent at your coffee shop taking in humanity's endlessly colourful social exchanges.

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

Coffee and Cigarettes will either entertain or madden you. Maybe both.

Embarrassingly lopsided between the evocative talents of its starry cast and crew members and the sheer banality of what Jarmusch has actually invited them to participate in.

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.
