"Broken Flowers" (2005)

Today I saw the new Jim Jarmusch film, “Broken Flowers” with Bill Murray. It moves along slowly, but it is rich with detail and moments to savor. The story is set up somewhat like a mystery investigation, and I suppose in a way that is exactly what it is, an investigation into Bill Murray’s character, Bob Johnston, as he goes to meet girlfriends from twenty years before. As the viewer you very much start to see the world as Bob does, picking up on details that matter to him, and trying to discern whether they are meaningful or not. Bob has a good eye for bare legs!

Recommended for folks who can handle films without car crashes.
