Night on Earth
Night on Earth, J. Jarmusch, 1991

Five entirely different cab rides in five locations around the world unfold simultaneously. Each ride is fraught with high drama, each one evoking a mood of time and place.

Though it may take a while to get Jarmusch's gist, hang in there; by the time Tom Waits growls his lovely closing waltz over the credits, Jarmusch has shown us moments most filmmakers don't even notice.
Time Out

Revisiting his interest in oblique comedy, Jarmusch explores a primal relationship, that of a passenger and taxi driver, using the cab as a temporary shared world, from which one party may emerge shaken up or feeling differently about himself/herself
