I don't consider myself a Bill Murray fan but he's such an indie icon these days. I don't even know if he's still considered a comedian. He developed this sad and melancholic aura which made me stay clear of his more recent movies such as Moonrise Kingdom.
But whether I like it or not, he is setting himself apart. His career path is so different from the ones of Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase or Eddie Murphy. And I'm not saying this just because of his many collaborations with Wes Anderson but because of things like these Bill Murray Paper Dolls:These paper dolls are so cute and quirky. There's also a video of the different costumes Bill Murray used in his movies accompanied by the movies' soundtrack.
Watching the video really made me smile. And it also made me compile impromptu lists about Bill Murray.
