| Perhaps my second or third favorite of the C&C shorts: A-
One of the shorts from Jim Jarmusch's 17-year compilation devoted to two of the most accepted of habits brings together relations of director Spike Lee, and the then lessor known actor Steve Buscemi. The short pulls off it's laughs while being blunt as well as subtle, if that makes sense. The Lee's are stuck in Memphis, and Elvis conspiracizer Buscemi tries out his 'evil-twin Elvis' theory on them. There's not a whole lot too the short, but what it delivers is genuine, and funny. The music as well is placed in with the right gusto. It's hard for me to say if it's my favorite of the vignette's from Jarmusch's mix of caffeine and nicotene laden shorts, however it does strike up as being one of the most memorable.
