Random Encounters: Trailer for 'The Bill Murray Stories' Documentary
"This is a search for answers." Gravitas Ventures has released the official trailer for a documentary known The Bill Murray Stories, in full the title is The Bill Murray Stories: Life Lessons Learned from a Mythical Man. This premiered at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this year, though it hasn't stopped by too many other festivals. As the title suggests, the film is about the various random encounters that people have had with legendary actor Bill Murray. He'll randomly show up at parties or birthdays or soccer matches, staying briefly before disappearing again. The film attempts to examine why and what's going on and who Bill Murray really is, what makes him do this. It's an intriguing look at the one-of-a-kind mind of a legend.
Here's the official trailer for Tommy Avallone's doc The Bill Murray Stories, direct from YouTube:
One man's journey to find meaning in Bill Murray's many unexpected adventures with everyday people, rare and never-before seen footage of the comedic icon partipating in stories previously presumed to be urban legend. Whether it be singing karaoke late at night with strangers or crashing a kickball game in the middle of the afternoon, Bill Murray lives in the moment and by doing so, creates magic with real people. The Bill Murray Stories: Life Lessons Learned from a Mythical Man is directed by American actor / producer / filmmaker Tommy Avallone, director of the doc I Am Santa Claus and the film Community College previously. This first premiered at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this year. Gravitas Ventures will release The Bill Murray Stories in select US theaters + on VOD starting October 26th this fall. Interested?
A friend of mine told me recently that he had read one of these stories about Bill, in which the person was at a restaurant and Bill Murray walked up, ate something off their plate, said "No one will ever believe you", then walked off. So awesome. I love him, can't wait to see this.

I don't know much about him privately, but he sometimes make an interesting film. Not that I don't like some of them. But this looks somehow unnecessary ...

He's created this mythos outside of his celebrity status by being almost unreachable (he doesn't have a cellphone, or if he does, no one knows his number) and he's extremely picky about what projects he does. Then he just randomly shows up wherever. Quite the eccentric I guess. Which is refreshing...

As much as I'm fascinated by Bill Murray, I think it's a bit grandiose and an overstatement saying he offers "Life Lessons" to be learned. What works for Bill Murray might not be feasible for everyone. Still, the guy is interesting and marches to his own beat. I love the randomness of his appearances and would love to hear the stories about how they came about. It looks interesting to say the least...
