Blue in the Face (1995)

I walked out of SMOKE; I stayed for BLUE IN THE FACE.  Paul Auster
and Wayne Wang's improvised, quasi-sequel to SMOKE is a mildly
diverting, occasionally hilarious love-letter to the borough with an
attitude.  Short sketches, star testimonials, and man-on-the-street
interviews make for an amusing, if slight, exploration of all things
that are Brooklyn.  So, in addition to cameos by Madonna, Lou Reed,
Jim Jarmusch, Lily Tomlin, Mira Sorvino, and Michael J. Fox, expect
plenty of talk about the Dodgers, Belgian waffles, and plastic bags
in the trees.

Grade: C
