Murray shows us that what was behind his early-period jaded-hipster shtick was a melancholy and fearful man.

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.
| Original Score: 4/5

Throbs with compressed emotion

Murray's performance is a highlight in a very entertaining dramedy.
October 5, 2008
Funny, disciplined, and acted with great skill and warmth.

The ending is sublime, a set piece that almost makes up for the overwhelming slightness of it all.
July 2, 2007
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.

The auteur's unbeatable weirdness here mutates into preciosity.
September 28, 2006
After a career of deadpanning, Murray's impassive performance is still fresh, funny, sympathetic and restrained.
August 7, 2006
This is a film about insufficiency on so many levels, a film not of hipster indifference, but of a certain effete inability to react.
April 1, 2006
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.

January 28, 2006
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.
