The Bill Murray Stories: Life Lessons Learned from a Mythical Man

A little slow and rough around the edges at times, as yet another documentary director scores a Netflix-funded outing.

But, the content is fairly entertaining as we track down all the urban tales of Bill Murray popping into the mainstream blah population to give them an experience of a guy that has perfected his own brand of improv.

So unique is Bill Murray's own brand of improvisation that he seems to have embraced the concept to live his life and run his career in much the same way a college improv student might approach a large stage. Without an agent and seemingly willing to allow people to call an 800 number to pitch him jobs (even Lost In Translation's director had to suffer months and months of calling the automated 800 number to try to get the actor on board with her movie), Bill Murray bounces across the universe in an endless "it just doesn't matter" bliss that you can't help but admire some of the Zen he projects.

Thankfully, the documentary does not drag much beyond an hour because it really does not need more than that to tell what it is telling.

In my opinion, they miss any reference to Bill embodying another legendary personality, Hunter S. Thompson, but other than that, the film does bring in a few iconic film scenes where we've learned to love the randomness of the Tao of Murray.
