Reviewed by: Andrea MullaneyRead The Exile's film review of Broken Flowers
Like the movie itself, these extras are quirky but insubstantial.
Girls On The Bus is an extended, pointless version of the waffly teenage girl conversation that (Bill Murray) overhears.
Start To Finish is an annoying seven-minute sequence of choppily edited clapperboard shots and muffled takes which only serves to prove that Murray is as deadpan out of character as in.
Farmhouse is the only section resembling a commentary, with director Jim Jarmusch's voiceover (sounding like it was recorded down a horribly crackly phone line) over footage of the location for the Cate Blanchett section. But as Jarmusch himself says, "I'm not real good at analysing [my films], it's not my job to know what they mean" - so don't expect any great insights.
Two trailers and a soundtrack advert make up the rest of this thin package.
Sound and picture quality, however, is excellent.Reviewed on: 18 Mar 2006
