Broken Flowers Reviews

Luke Goodsell
Empire Magazine Australasia

Many will relish Broken Flowers' refusal to serve up a resolution; others will find it frustrating. Inevitably, that's Jarmusch: like Murray's character journey, the rewards lie in the small moments that fade as much as the ones that linger.

Insightful, entertaining, and a worthy addition to the filmography of one of America's more interesting modern directors.

Eye for Film

Each encounter is a finely observed and beautifully performed vignette in its own right, but together they sketch out a past from which our grey Lothario has been irrevocably set adrift.

Womanizer cads may be front and center in movies. But surprisingly sometimes, so are the impressive accompanying ensemble righteous females who cut them nicely down to size, and the quirky and twisted Broken Flowers is no exception.

After a career of deadpanning, Murray's impassive performance is still fresh, funny, sympathetic and restrained.

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

This is a film about insufficiency on so many levels, a film not of hipster indifference, but of a certain effete inability to react.

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

It's about questions, not easy answers, and its refusal to provide them might frustrate some viewers unaccustomed to Jarmusch's elliptical style.

Jim Jarmusch vuelve a sorprender con una película minimalista donde los pequeños detalles, varios personajes episódicos, y un casi imperturbable Bill Murray, nos conducen hacia una travesía extraña y sugestiva.

A beguiling road movie, where the stops along the way are of the heart, Broken Flowers is a sublime delicacy.

Murray manages, almost impossibly, to come up with still another rich variation on his Depleted Man persona, and his performance is at once enormously generous and fiercely, concisely witty.
