3.5 out of 10 Coffee & Cigarettes vs Marmite
Laura from Kildare, 21 Dec 2007
This film was recomended to me by a friend a long while back so I finally decided to rent it out and have a look for myself, not having any clue of what to expect. I was very impressed with what this film turned out to be, a little-known almost underground movie featuring big names such as Iggy Pop Tom Waits Meg & Jack White just casually popping up all throughout. It's one of the most bizarre series of mini eventualities I've been witness too in a long while, but it's not for everyone. Marmite.

1 out of 10 Prefer a nice cup of tea myself
John from Donegal, 01 Sep 2007
I expected to really like this film, but didn't. Whatever message, or meaning, or reason behind it was lost on me. Perhaps I'm too old for it, or not in the right frame of mind (and by that I mean high). I'm sure there are people who will love it. But I found most of it bordering on tedious and towards the end was using the fast-forward. I thought the Alfred Molina sketch ended very well, but took too long to get there. All in all, I can't recommend this film to anyone, Guess I'm just not cool.

2.5 out of 10 Disappointing
Dan from Dublin, 14 Apr 2007
Without the cult of celebrity this film has very little going for it. Maybe the cultural aspects of coffee drinking applicable to the US do not resonate as strongly for me as an Irish man. Some of the scenes are fantastic particularly the last, very surreal scene, involving two old men on a coffee break. However there are far too many pointless scenes wich, as I say unless you like celebrity spotting, will be dissappointing.

0.5 out of 10 No plot, overracted...
Myles from Dublin, 30 Nov 2007
Excessively arty, and more than a little contrived - star cameos make it only just bearable...

Aishling from Longford, 08 Jun 2008
Well worth the watch just to see the Iggy Pop & Tom Waits scene.

What's it about....
Jim Jarmusch has consistently wowed audiences with his truly distinctive cinematic vision. Shot over the course of a 17-year-period, 'Coffee And Cigarettes' proves once again that Jarmusch is a true original. This time around, the director tries his hand at the short film genre, delivering 11 shorts that are all based around the seemingly insignificant acts of drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes. In the first short, "Strange to Meet You," Steven Wright and Roberto Benigni...
