Number of Times Seen – 1 (8 Jun 2014)
Brief Synopsis – A wealthy man is convinced by his sleuth neighbor to try and find out which of his long ago exes set his a mysterious letter
My Take on it – Bill Murray use to be known solely as a comedic actor, but he has ventured into dramatic territory all the while showing he is more than just the butt of a joke, but rather a real thespian.
Unless Groundhog Day (1993) is considered to be a drama, I think this is by far his best dramatic role ever.
The writing is great and Writer/Director Jim Jarmusch has created characters and situations which are borderline quirky, but still keep the viewer interested.
Throughout the movie, like in life, many questions are brought up and it isn’t always easy to get the right response or even the one we are seeking.
Bottom Line – Great performance by Murray. One of his best dramatic roles ever. A bit quirky at points, but still entertaining story and characters throughout. Recommended!
Rating – Globe Worthy
