Writer/director Jarmusch upped his game to ride along in five different cities with an international cast enacting humorously skewed taxi tête-à-têtes between cabbies and their passengers. Ahead of NYC, Paris, Rome, and Helsinki, the meter starts running in L.A.. After depositing a fare at the airport with Lisanne Falk (one of Heathers’ Heathers), working-class Ryder picks up business-class industry player Gena Rowlands—who picks her driver’s brain.
