Movie: Broken Flowers (2005)

Broken Flowers DVDI like this movie better after letting it sit in my mind for a while. As with most Jim Jarmush movies I feel like I’m missing some things, but it did give me a distinct impression of how the mind can operate. I’m reminded of Robert Anton Wilson’s theory of the Thinker and the Prover: what the thinker thinks, the prover proves. His example is that if you can convince yourself that you have a great ability for finding quarters, that you were meant to find quarters, you will start finding quarters everywhere. Yet, in the end, the prover never really proves anything with certainty. This movie is a nice illustration of that, and has many other nice touches too.
