Two innocent people are arrested. An interesting third person, with broken English, joins them in their cell. On his idea, they decide to escape from the prison. Their journey is the rest of the movie.
As the extremely withdrawn Don Johnston is dumped by his latest woman, he receives an anonymous letter from a former lover informing him that he has a son who may be looking for him. A freelance sleuth neighbor moves Don to embark on a cross-country search for his old flames in search of answers.
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.Written by

One of the segments in Jim Jarmusch's compilation of caffeine/nicotine laden scenes, Part 3 (which, coincidentally, is the third in the full-length film out this year) has Tom Waits meeting up with Iggy Pop at a low-rent bar in LA, where the jukebox plays some sweet little number. Their conversation is one of the best of the lot in the full-length film, and as itself it stands up very well (it was very deserved of it's win at Cannes) as a back & forth between two immensely talented, if slightly ego-ish, musicians in their off-time. Whether or not it's improvised, it pulls off its laughs with the sort of uncomfortableness that's rather reminiscent of a Seinfeld episode (a good one). The last line also is a keeper, as is the ending pause.
