  From the moment he released his amusingly deadpan, made-for-a-pittance debut feature, "Stranger Than Paradise," director/screenwriter Jim Jarmusch embodied the quintessential maverick independent filmmaker. The budgets got larger and the casts more famous, yet Jarmusch continues to navigate the fringes of the movie business and toy with the conventions of the form. His anthology "Coffee and Cigarettes" is an addictively watchable series of vignettes featuring various recognizable stars of film, TV and pop music. Jarmusch captures them in intimate moments, somewhere between spontaneous and contrived, as they consume caffeine and/or nicotine. With performers ranging from Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray and Roberto Benigni to Iggy Pop, Tom Waits and RZA, and lots of whimsy on the menu, some of the segments are wonderful, exploring behavioral quirks and interpersonal dissonance, and a couple are trivial or silly. The standouts: An uncomfortably real dialogue between Blanchett and her rocker-chick cousin (both played, believably, by the actress), regarding the effects of fame on family relations; and Alfred Molina's hilarious attempt to befriend fellow actor Steve Coogan. "Coffee and Cigarettes" was assembled piece-by-piece over two decades, but it's meant as a jumble of moods and themes — and the approach worked.
