WELCOME TO THOH, IT'S JUST ANOTHER "NIGHT ON EARTH"! - 1991 JIM JARMUSCH TAXICAB HORROR-PIECE

FIVE CITIES - FIVE TAXICABS
Winona Ryder absolutely kills it as the San Fernando Valley tomboy cab driver. As many times as I've seen it, every time I notice something different, the sign of a masterful performance, wonderfully understated. 
NYC - 3 great actors at the top of their game. Giancarlo Esposito is off the chart in the film's most hilarious segment of the five. 
Paris - Literally an Oscar-worthy performance by Beatrice Dalle as a sassy blind passenger. 
Rome - Roberto Benigni - another hilarious segment as he picks up a priest as a passenger and decides to confess to him on the way to his destination. 
While not as comical as the stories before it, the Helsinki segment is the perfect 'let-ya-down-easy' way to end the film. It continues to be a fav for me of the 5.
PINEWOODS RATING SYSTEM - FIVE TALL PINEWOODS

Night On Earth Movie Review & Film Summary (1992) | Roger Ebert

Jim Jarmusch's "Night on Earth" assembles five moments in time, in taxicabs, in the middle of the night, in five of the world's cities. At the end, we have learned no great lessons and arrived at no thrilling conclusions, but we have shared the community of the night, when people are unbuttoned and vulnerable - more ready to speak about what's really on their minds.

Editor's Notes: The following review is part of our coverage for TIFF's Strange Paradise: The Cinema of Jim Jarmusch.

For all their style, the source of the greatness in the films of Jim Jarmusch is not aesthetic, but conversational.

Helsinki at dawn.
THE HORROR!!
