In each scene, driver and passenger are separated by more than the usual pane of glass - they are more like complete social, cultural and/or moral opposites. Jarmusch uses this clash to create side splittingly funny banter between the characters.
This film is laid back and there is no plot as such but it is definitely worth watching for the astutely observed dialogue.
For those who find the New York episode fascinating, a book has just been published dealing exclusively with that episode: Bernd Wahlbrinck, "Jim Jarmusch's NIGHT ON EARTH: THE NEW YORK EPISODE - with an appendix for English teachers" I think it's a treat ...
This is a wonderful film and well worth watching. Sometimes the simplest concepts make great cinema. And Tom Waite's title and credit songs are excellent as well.
