You Ought to Go See “Get Low,” Starring Bob Duvall and Bill Murray. Opens Today

Friday, August 6th, 2010

IMO, Get Low is an excellent film with excellent performances from Robert Duvall and Bill Murray. I don’t think it will win the Academy Award for Best Picture next year, but it’s better than it’s not so that’s why it has a 100% rating from 18 top critics at Rotten Tomatoes.

JMO.

(Thought it was a little twee to name the wood-obsessed main character “Bush.” Then I found out that the inspiration for this “true tall tale” was a man named Bush who became famous for wanting to attend his own funeral back in the day. OK then.)

I’m up for seeing it again. I’m sure I will at some point.

It opens today at the Embarcadero and a few other places in the bay area.
