Blue In The Face Yify

Storyline:   "Blue in the Face" is a 1995 comedy-drama film directed by Wayne Wang and co-written by Paul Auster. The movie takes place in a Brooklyn cigar store where a variety of characters gather to share stories, jokes, and musings on life. The film is a loose sequel to Wang's earlier film "Smoke," and features several of the same characters and actors. However, "Blue in the Face" is a more freewheeling and improvisational film, with much of the dialogue and action being ad-libbed by the actors.

Throughout the movie, we meet a variety of colorful characters, including the store's owner (played by Harvey Keitel), a streetwise kid (played by Michael J. Fox), a down-on-his-luck musician (played by Jim Jarmusch), and a host of others. The characters come and go, sharing stories and experiences that range from the humorous to the profound. As the film progresses, we get a sense of the vibrant and diverse community that exists within the neighborhood. We see the struggles and triumphs of the people who live there, and the connections that bind them together. With its offbeat humor, lively performances, and quirky characters, "Blue in the Face" is a charming and heartfelt ode to community and the simple pleasures of life. It's a film that celebrates the joys of human connection and the beauty of everyday moments, and leaves viewers with a warm and fuzzy feeling.

Blue In The Face Trivia

  1. Instead of stopping filming, the directors of the movie "Blue in the Face" would hold up signs reading "Keep it up" or "Boring" to provide feedback to the actors during the 10-minute uninterrupted takes.
  2. "Blue in the Face" was filmed in just five days, reusing the same set and much of the same cast as the movie "Smoke" (1995). The idea for the film came about when directors Wayne Wang and Paul Auster watched an improvisation session between Harvey Keitel and others to help them get into character for "Smoke" (1995). They found the improvisations so funny that they decided to film a movie that was almost entirely improvised, spending a few days after "Smoke" (1995) wrapped.
  3. "Blue in the Face" was a commercial success, grossing 9.2 million dollars at the box office on a budget of just over a million dollars.
  4. The Van Atta necklace is a reference to the film's producer, Don Van Atta, who worked on several other films in the 1990s, including "To Die For" (1995) and "Cop Land" (1997).
  5. During the filming of the scene with Giancarlo Esposito, Stephen Gevedon, José Zúñiga, and Malik Yoba, the actors struggled to improvise due to the lack of a script and the extreme heat. After many takes, Harvey Keitel suggested that Peggy Gormley should slap Gevedon to elicit a more energetic reaction. This take was ultimately used in the final cut of the film.
  6. Jim Jarmusch was originally meant to reprise his role from "Smoke" (1995) in the scene he appeared in for "Blue in the Face." However, due to scheduling conflicts, William Hurt was unable to appear in the film, and Jarmusch took his place.
  7. Mel Gorham's rendition of "Fever" was so impressive at the film's wrap party that the producers decided to add a scene featuring her performance to the final cut of the movie.
  8. Mel Gorham drew inspiration for her portrayal of Violet from her Cuban mother, adding a personal touch to her character.
  9. Paul Auster and Wayne Wang initially found that the improvisational approach to "Blue in the Face" was not working as they had hoped. They requested an additional three days of filming, during which all of the scenes were scripted. The scenes featuring Keith David and Madonna were among those scripted.
  10. The scene with Keith David playing Jackie Robinson was inspired by a dream that Miramax chairman Harvey Weinstein had.
  11. "Blue in the Face" marked the debut of actresses Luz Alexandra Ramos and Chelsea Altman.
  12. Malik Yoba's character in "Blue in the Face" wears a baseball jersey that represents the Colt 45's, the original name of the Houston Astros when they entered the National League of Major League Baseball in 1962.
  13. "Blue in the Face" is one of 12 films featuring both Harvey Keitel and Victor Argo. The other films include "Mean Streets" (1973), "Taxi Driver" (1976), "Falling in Love" (1984), "Off Beat" (1986), "The Pick-up Artist" (1987), "The Last Temptation of Christ" (1988), "Bad Lieutenant" (1992), "Monkey Trouble" (1994), "Somebody to Love" (1994), "Smoke" (1995), and "Lulu on the Bridge" (1998).
