"After being dumped by yet another girlfriend (Julie Delpy), Don Johnston (Bill Murray) vows he'll be alone forever. But when a mysterious unsigned letter arrives in the mail, he's surprised to learn he has a 19-year-old son.

With no idea who the mother could be, Don sets out on a cross-country journey to confront his past, surprising a series of old flames (Frances Conroy, Jessica Lange, Sharon Stone and Tilda Swinton) along the way." Netflix summary.

I look forward to a new (Jim) Jarmusch film the way some fans of their less-than-prolific favorite authors wait for their latest published piece. Less than a dozen films in the past 20 plus years he steadily delivers films that don't flinch from shots and scenes that are allowed to unfold in real cinema time. A typical director will chop up scenes to render them more "injectable," Jarmusch allows for space and time to give the viewer more options.

Bill Murray's perpetually undercommitted single man is well played to type. A man with the time to find out the source of anonymous letter and a tantalizing bit of news, he has son. With the goading-help of his neighbor Winston, (Jeffrey Wright) he sets out to reconvene with former girlfriends from a period of time, some 20 years earlier.

Nothing is obvious. The path of the past never crosses and the trajectories are linked together via the colorings of Murray's Don.
