Movie-A-Day #340: Night on Earth (1991).
On this day in 1897, London became the first city in the world to become home to a fleet of licensed taxicabs. Cab drivers are a breed apart, with London cabbies becoming legendary for their navigational skills. (So legendary, in fact, that they are able to help neurologists study previously unknown aspects of human brain development.) Jim Jarmusch’s film “Night on Earth” celebrates cab drivers around the world with five stories set on the same night in five different cities (not including London, unfortunately).
