Sunday night.

This is the first anniversary of 9/11 that hasn't felt as much like 9/11 to me. I don't know if it's because time has passed or because the whole country has been fixated on the more recent disaster in New Orleans and the surrounding area.

I finally saw Broken Flowers this weekend, and although Jim Jarmusch lingers on his posed shots for what feels like an eternity and that's always kind of annoyed me about his movies (all right already, we get the point!), I really liked this film. Bill Murray was good and the supporting cast was great, and even if the shots were lingered on too long, they were beautiful enough for me almost not to mind.

Broken Flowers was the first movie I saw in Hanover. I too thought a lot of the shots hung on too long. By the end of the movie, I didn't care so much about the ending. Overall, I'd have to give it a thumbs down. I guess its ok, but just because its weird doesn't mean its good.

Thats my 2 cents anyway. For another two cents, I recommend checking out some other Bill Murray classics if you haven't already:


Kingpin
Rushmore
Stripes
