In this anthology of comic vignettes, unlikely pairs of celebrities sit down to talk about everything from Tesla coils to jukeboxes to long-lost relatives to the dentist. The conversations are separate in time and place, but they all have two things in common: coffee and cigarettes.

Ah oui, je l'aime bien ce Jarmusch-ci (comme beaucoup d'autres, en fait) ! Comment faire rire mais aussi (parfois) réfléchir, en causant de café et de cigarettes de plein de façons absurdes et décalées... Même si les séquences sont très inégales, aucune n'est mauvaise. Rien que pour le duo Cate Blanchett + Cate Blanchett (eh oui), ça vaut vraiment le coup d'œil. Et aussi pour Bill Murray. Et aussi...
Not all of these vignettes are good but the ones with Bill Murray, RZA, and GZA, Tom Waits and Iggy Pop, Steve Buscemi, Joie Lee, and Cinque Lee, and the one with Steven Wright and Roberto Benigni are by far some of the funniest sequences ever filmed.
I really enjoyed the vignettes with Tom Waits and Iggy Pop and the one with Bill Murray because, like the all film, had so much of the Jarmusch feel I love so dearly. But I must say that the one that left a bigger impression on me was definitely the last one, with William and Taylor. Because of this all star cast it's rare to see anyone mention this short but I found it so beautiful and touching.
C: I'd love to hear the music. What does it sound like?
S: It's really...kind of hard...and it's industrial, kind of throbbing...I don't think you'd get it.
C: What are they called?
S: They're called Sqürl.
