In segments

Jim Jarmusch, for many and different reasons, is one of my favorite guys, I mean, on the movie business. That is the same to say that he is the best of the gang. Life and cinema is quite the same, one resembles the other. It's quite the only religion where you can see God for real. Yeah, in front of you just talking with himself, and if you got the luck he can just be there by your side, telling some jokes. Well. Religion should be not more than a fun thing to do.
One of the best examples of Jarmusch masterpieces is Coffee and Cigarettes. The film is composed of a comic series of short vignettes shot in black and white built on one another to create a cumulative effect, as the characters discuss things as diverse as caffeine popsicles, Paris in the 1920s and the use of nicotine as an insecticide — all the while sitting around drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes. As the film delves into the normal pace of our world from an extraordinary angle, it attempts to demonstrate how absorbing the obsessions, joys, and addictions of life can be, if truly observed.
In this scene, from "Somewhere in California", musicians Iggy Pop and Tom Waits (played by themselves) smoke cigarettes to celebrate that they quit smoking, drink some coffee and have an awkward conversation. Is just the best thing you have to do right now. Follow this way.
