As I wrote in the comments – I have some serious nostalgia associated with this multi-director film from 1995. It was back in high school, almost 10 years now and I picked up movies as my another interest (more info here). At first I was fascinated with Jarmusch’s movies so inevitably I came across this cinema-verité‘d pseudodocumentary shot by Paul Auster and Wang brothers.
Jarmusch has a role here as well (Bob) and you get to see some major stars of the mid-90′s such as Roseanne (from the sitcom) or what seems to be a guest appearance of Lou Reed (video here). The main dude that serves as narrator as well is Harvey Keitel, a tough bloke from Brooklyn. It’s also important to note that this film is a follow up to Smoke which is also great.
Mel Gorham as passionate Violet is also great with her mirror monologue. The overall feeling of Blue in The Face is very relaxed and chilled and I’ve got so many good memories tied to it that it’s hard for me not to recommend it to all of you.
You can get Blue in The Face on Amazon.com for only $6.99 and Smoke on DVD for $19.98. This post is the last one for this competition so I thank mostly to James for coming back here and I hope to drag more people in here in may.
