Broken Flowers

In Broken Flowers, Bill Murray says more by just sitting and staring at the camera for 30 seconds than many actors do yapping non-stop for two hours. An early scene showing Don Johnston (Bill) sitting on the sofa staring at a television is able to tell his whole story without saying a word. Directed by Jim Jarmusch, the film meanders along smoothly, spending most of its time on long, still shots of Don. Bill Murray is brilliant and I loved the film. Beware, if you’re one of the unfortunate souls who found Lost in Translation too slow, then skip this one – but too bad for you.
