Broken Flowers

Deadpan comedy from Jim Jarmusch and starring Bill Murray (at the peak of his renaissance, following collaborations with Wes Anderson and Sofia Coppola). An anonymous letter arrives at former ladies' man Don's (Murray) door, informing him he has a grown-up son who may be searching for him. Egged on by his wannabe-private eye neighbour (Jeffrey Wright), he embarks on a cross-country journey in search of his former flames (including Sharon Stone, Jessica Lange and Tilda Swinton) who could possibly be the mother.

Working in his typically idiosyncratic and episodic vein, Jarmusch has nonetheless pitched the film slightly more toward mainstream tastes than usual for him, using excellent thesps in the service of accessible material.

A wry, beautifully understated road movie from a writer-director perfectly in tune with Bill Murray's melancholy, deadpan style.

The ending is sublime, a set piece that almost makes up for the overwhelming slightness of it all.

A sly, touching film, Bill Murray reaffirms his status as the quietest comic actor in movies today.

No actor is better than Bill Murray as doing nothing at all, and being fascinating while not doing it.

Could break Jarmusch out of the art house, but admirers may question the film's overly conventional approach.

Subtle, warm direction from Jim Jarmusch and another Oscar-worthy performance from Bill Murray — will the Academy just give him a statue, already?
