Night on Earth 1991 / Available On Streaming Rental or Purchase

7.9

An absolute delight of a gem starring a young Winona Ryder as well as an amazing cast. Arguably Jim Jarmusch’s best film, it tells the story of 5 different places at night from the perspective of cab drivers and their passengers: Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Rome, and Helsinki. It’s really hard to pick a favorite among the stories, from a messy tomboy having to deal with a busy businesswoman, to a blind woman in Paris making a frustrated driver from Ivory Coast go insane. But look out for Helmut and Yo-Yo, from the New York story. I’ve rarely seen anything in film as fun as their story.

    My vote goes to Roberto Benigni for 10 minutes of laughing so hard that my fresh stitches in a personal area tore out. I saw this phenomenon first in the 90’s and a few times since and the frenzy, the timing, the acting, the camera... well, I’m a virgin every time. And of course NOE all together is a masterpiece. A Masterpiece. 2 people liked this review.
