Trivia

Bill Murray has said the line, or a variation on it, in a few movies, that "it just doesn't matter." Bill Murray the man lives by this credo, because he doesn't believe there is a difference between "celebrity" and "just making someone feel good in the moment." He has transcended the actor/movie star role, to become someone we should all aspire to be. See more »

Recommended, but not perfect
24 January 2019 | by carpe-dm68See all my reviews

The Bill Murray Stories is a documentary by a Murray fan that starts by recapping a bunch of the tales of how Murray intersects people's lives in ways that seem odd for a celebrity, and then explores how these stories tell us something about Murray and the life lessons we should take from him. On that level, it's very successful and well done. My only complaints are that the filmmaker inserts himself into the movie a little too much -- and especially in ways that make you think he hasn't internalized the things that he's saying make Murray so appealing. (And a couple of scenes with the filmmaker seem contrived -- as if they were a film school assignment.) My second complaint is that the movie doesn't explore/address some of the possible darkness in Murray. There is no attempt to deal with the drunken golf cart ride or allegations by his ex-wife. Don't get me wrong: I'm okay with a certain amount of mythologizing. And I do love this movie, but a more rounded picture of the man would've upped my 8 to a 9 or 10.
