Aziz Ansari on "Broken Flowers"


Our man Aziz Ansari has seen Jarmusch's newest Broken Flowers, and unlike me, loved it:

I also saw "Broken Flowers" last night. It was f'n awesome. Does it even need to be said that Bill Murray was amazing? You can just look at that poster and tell that he's the man and that he's gonna put on another killer performance. I also loved Jeffrey Wright as his neighbor, the character is f'n amazing and I wish there some more screentime for him. Also, hilarious (but also unfortunately brief) performance from Christopher McDonald as Ron (he played the game show host in "Requiem for a Dream".) Anyway, check it out. Also saw a preview for some new movie Wes Anderson is producing starring Jeff Daniels and the kid from "Rodger Dodger" that looked pretty cool. Too lazy to IMDB it for the name.

Broken Flowers is not amazing or bad. Although it has a ton of flaws Bill Murray's performance is reserved and sad and great plus the scene where he eats dinner with the real estate couple blew me away. As Keegan has expressed, there's a lot to criticize in the film. Much of it is too silly and too broad and it lacks any specific visual style. Regardless, I think it's going way overboard to claim that it's without merit at all.
