Wow. Birdman. It’s hard to describe Birman. It’s hard to really explain how I feel/what I think of this movie. It was strange and weird and good and bizarre and interesting and original and creative and brilliant and disorienting and so much more.
Iñárritu must be a fucking madman pulling off what he does in Birman. It really feels like a continuous shot throughout, even knowing there is trick editing going on, but he pulls it off. I was actually surprised by how that style made me feel. It was more of a claustrophobic effect than I would have imagined but it worked with the material and tone of the piece.
The acting is superb from the entire cast. Keaton is able to take this movie to the next level but everyone in the cast helps him shine. If Keaton doesn’t get an Oscar nom there will be hell to pay.
Birdman is funny, dramatic, thought-provoking, shocking, intriguing, and again so so much more.
God Bless America
