Jim Jarmusch - Broken Flowers (3)

Amazingly, having a wrinkled and depressed Bill Murray in a jumpsuit drive around coloring tress does not a good movie make. Who would have thought? In fairness, I was probably having my expectations too high, since I'm an admirer of both Jarmusch's (Dead Man!) and Murray's previous work. But even after correcting for that, I did not feel a connection with either Murray (who played essentially the same character, only much better, in Lost in Translation) or any of his former girlfriends, and the neighbour gone detective, as a grotesque caricature, doesn't even qualify. Watch About Schmidt instead, it's a much better movie.
