Review: Jim Jarmusch's 'Coffee and Cigarettes'

Coffee and Cigarettes, from iconoclast director Jim Jarmusch, is the culmination of years of filming vignettes centering on coffee shops. The movie features a variety of performers, from Tom Waits to Iggy Pop and Steven Wright. NPR's Bob Mondello has a review.
