This movie will surprise some because it is a bit of a comedy and more of a thriller. The movie will educate many about the Funeral Process and about funerals in general. It is about staging one’s own mock funeral.
His new film, “Get Low,” opening Friday, stars Robert Duvall as an old hermit who wants to have his funeral service while he’s alive, so he can hear what people have to say.
The still-luminous Sissy Spacek is a woman from Duvall’s past; Murray is the slightly slick undertaker who puts the whole thing together.
It was, obviously, one of those rare scripts that actually got to Murray and that he liked well enough to sign up for. The famously no-fuss star even bought his own plane ticket to the shoot, arriving in rural Georgia sans entourage. (“He doesn’t even have any people,” I overhear someone marveling later, after the premiere.)
To Hollywood types, this is enough to mark Murray as a grade-A eccentric. To Murray — who lives quietly in upstate New York — it’s the only way to stay normal.
