Ever since I saw the eclectic movie directed by Wes Anderson, and starring Bill Murray, my view on David Bowie changed. For the better. Partially due to the movie, and partially do to the brilliant performances of one Seu Jorge. If you have never seen the film, I urge you to do so. It’s perhaps the ultimate tribute to the late David Bowie.
I found out like many, on social media early Monday morning. I did not know of Bowie’s struggle with cancer. (For those who might not know, Duncan Jones is David Bowie’s son).
I can think of no better way to help myself heal up than to watch a Bill Murray movie. One where Bowie’s songs are celebrated throughout the film.
While I didn’t see it when it came out in the theaters (I wanted to!) I did catch it a little later on a movie channel. I was hooked from the first time. The cherry on top of this musical sundae was Seu Jorge playing over a dozen David Bowie songs on acoustic guitar.
I hope you check out The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, and celebrate the life of David Bowie through his music, and what it meant to so many people.
