Blue in the Face / Brooklyn Boogie (1995) Paul Auster, Wayne Wang, Harvey Keitel, Lou Reed, Michael J. Fox, Comedy

Brooklyn Boogie 1995
Director Wayne Wang and screenwriter Paul Auster had enough storylines and characters left over from their charming comedy Smoke to make another film, so they shot Blue In The Face immediately after Smoke was completed. The film once again centers on the Brooklyn Cigar Store and manager Auggie (Harvey Keitel), although most of the other characters are different. The store owner’s frustrated wife Dot (Roseanne) is one of them, and one of the plotlines follows her attempts to seduce Auggie. Madonna, Michael J. Fox, Lily Tomlin, and Lou Reed (as himself) also put in appearances. Blue In The Face was shot without a complete script and presents a unique combination of distinctive performances, oddball characters, improvisations, and raffish scenes.

Cast/Avec Lou Reed, Michael J. Fox, Roseanne, Mel Gorham, Jim Jarmusch, Lily Tomlin, Jared Harris, Giancarlo Esposito, Malik Yoba, José Zúñiga, Victor Argo…

Se situant dans la continuité immédiate de Smoke, Brooklyn Boogie n’en constitue pas véritablement la suite. Ce film se présente comme un défilé de personnages hauts en couleurs (et parfois très connus), à l’intérieur du débit de tabac tenu par Auggie Wren (voir Smoke). Tourné en quelques jours, il est cependant le résultat de plusieurs mois de montage, et reflète l’affection particulière de l’écrivain américain Paul Auster pour le quartier de Brooklyn et ses habitants.
