An extraordinary achievement

"People, they love blood. They love action. Not this talky, depressing, philosophical bullshit."

I am prepared to be one of the lone dissenting voices on Birdman’s inevitable domination come awards season. Just looking at the critical consensus at Rotten Tomatoes means I am in the 7% who did not find the movie “an ambitious technical showcase powered by a layered story.”

No, I found Birdman to be contemptuous of its audience, assaulting their intelligence and talking down... read more

Through the years, the Academy has made some poor choices but, lately, I have to admit that they finally got it right and this movie was definitely a worthy winner. Eventually, I still think that 'Boyhood' was in fact a better choice but this flick was really not far behind and I liked it a lot. To be honest, I thought that the actual play was in fact about Birdman so I was expecting something sli... read more

"2015/12/25 @home on DVD with Kendra Very weird. Story of an actor who used to play the superhero, "Birdman" and his attempt to put on a play. In the story, it mentions that he hasn't been Birdman since 1992, which happens to be the time of the last movie Michael Keaton played Batman."

Complete Review of Alejandro González Movies. (6 movies items)

"Birdman was the movie that got Alejandro González into the Hollywood exposure, because, until 2014, Alejandro wasn't really known or popular, sure, he had good movies, but most of them were obscure and unpopular, and Birdman was the movie who brought all the buzz. In terms of Alejandro González work, this is really unusual production, as he stepped away from the three stories theme and created something really unique, a story about broadway, an okay story at best, but the style was the elem"
