Coffee and Cigarettes
Filmfest 2004

"Coffee & Cigarettes“ is a series of short films disguised as a feature (or maybe vice versa). Each sequence involves several characters just sitting around, drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes and discussing subjects as diverse as caffeine popsicles, Abbott & Costello, Elvis conspiracy theories, the proper preparation of English tea, the inventions of Nikola Tesla, the fictitious rock band SQÜRL and the use of nicotine as an insecticide. The cast is an extremely eclectic group of actors and musicians portraying an equally eclectic collection of oddballs, with sequences strikingly photographed in BLACK (coffee) and WHITE (cigarettes).
