You probably figured out the premise of Zoom months ago. It calls attention to some specific something that stands out in a movie or on television and is worthy of further attention. A zoom, after all, is a shot where the lens moves. If that isn’t standing out, what is? The Zoom subject can be a shot or a scene or a bit of dialogue or, well, you get the idea. Something special happens.
The thing about Jem Cohen’s “Museum Hours,” which came out earlier this summer and plays at the Brattle Sunday as part of its Recent Raves series, is that nothing really special happens at all. Figuratively as well as literally, the movie is quite zoomless — which makes the whole thing something special.
