Cigarettes & Coffee is a 1993 short film written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, starring Philip Baker Hall. It tells the story of five people connected through a twenty-dollar bill. The film helped launch the career of Anderson and was used as a basis for his first feature film, Hard Eight.
This is the short film P.T.Anderson directed back in 1992 (shot on a borrowed camera), which used the money he saved from dropping out of NYU film school to help fund it.
