It’s always a pleasure… No wait… Hang on, I realise that I have seen
this film actually once, when it was initially released, but never
since. For some reason, though, this lttle group of people feels like a
small familiy: Auggie with his tobacco shop, Forest Whitaker struggling
with his smartass boy, William Hurt more vulnerable than anybody can
possibly be in his effort to get over his wife’s death… Funnily, I had
completely forgotten about most of the plot and was always waiting for
Jim Jarmusch to enter the scene, announcing that he would like to smoke
the last cigarette of his life together with Auggie. This, apparently,
would have been “Blue in the Face”, but does it matter? A wonderful
picture with mostly wonderful people in it. Apart from Auggie’s
girlfriend, of course.
