Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)


Riggan Thompson, a washed-up actor who once played an iconic superhero, must overcome his ego and family trouble as he mounts a Broadway play in a bid to reclaim his past glory.

Birdman is definitely one of the best movies of the year, or maybe even THE best. The plot is great and very interesting, The cast are all fantastic, especially Michael Keaton and Emma Stone. Zach Galifianakis was really good, too. The cinematography is great, and I love how the entire movie is, like, one take. There is only one camera on the set that moves with the actors from scene to scene. It’s unique, and unlike any other movie. It was a great experience. The directing is fantastic as well, and this is probably Alejandro G. Inarritu’s breakthrough film. I’m glad he got nominated. Keaton and Stone deserved their nominations as well. This movie deserved it’s other nominations, too. I think it has a great change of winning Best Picture, or Director.

Birdman is definitely one of the greatest, most creative films about film making and the media. I loved the way Michael Keaton showed me the distress and suffering he was going through with himself, and Emma Stone did great as his just-out-of-rehab daughter, who doesn’t like him for not being around when she was younger. The directing and cinematography are also fantastic. I would highly recommend this movie, it’s definitely a must-see! I think the age limit would be 14 or 15 because of some inappropriate content.
