This shortcut repeats the structure of Coffee and Cigarettes. This time, Iggy Pop and Tom Waits meet in a bar. But, again, we don't know why they agreed to do that in the first place, because they don't seem to know each other very well and they don't have much to talk about, so the conversation wanders idly and hilariously as they sip their coffee and smoke cigarettes.

One of the more memorable from 'Coffee and Cigarettes'
I like Tom Waits when he is on the screen. Here he appears in the third short film from 'Coffee and Cigarettes', the work director Jim Jarmusch started in 1986 to finish it in 2003. This one is from 1993, the same year we saw Waits in Robert Altman's 'Short Cuts'. He sits down together with another famous artist, Iggy Pop, to talk over coffee and cigarettes. And of course about coffee and cigarettes.
This is one of the more memorable episodes, not only because it stars these two musicians, but also because their conversation feels very reel. They have those uncomfortable silences where one the two, most of the time Iggy, starts talking about nothing again since he can't handle the silence. The response from Waits on most things Iggy says is great. The final line that involves a juke-box where not records of Waits are on is a nice ending for this one.
