    Jarmusch makes it a feast that plays like a haunting concept album. show more

    Very slight and, in the early going, slightly annoying, Coffee and Cigarettes is a long-borning Jarmusch project. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    The lone gem of the anthology takes place in the loft of a trendy L.A. restaurant where a snooty Steve Coogan learns from starstruck Alfred Molina that the actors are cousins...This is the longest of the shorts, and has a payoff ending that nearly makes the whole thing worthwhile. show more

    In Jarmusch's capable hands, the mundane has never been so delightful. show more

    Glenn Kenny Premiere

    By the end the movie has pretty much ceased taking itself at all seriously, devolving into a nonchalant giggliness of the stoned variety that's completely apropos. show more

    Sometimes movies tire us by trying too relentlessly to pound us with their brilliance and energy. Here is a movie pitched at about the energy level of a coffee break.

    A series of vignettes...Some are weak, some are superb -- there's a priceless one with Alfred Molina and Steve Coogan as Brits with different feelings about learning they're cousins -- but they get better as they go along. show more

    Megan Lehmann New York Post

    Indie hipster Jarmusch's distinctive brand of effortless cool and quirky humor percolate through each of 11 vignettes, all shot fairly statically in crisp, aesthetically pleasing black and white. show more
