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

It's frankly miraculous that a motion picture like Birdman can sneak its way into theatres in this day and age.

"Re-watch - Dec. 8th Birdman still leaves me in awe of its technical prowess, but I wouldn't love it if I didn't enjoy the characters, the story, and the meanings behind it all. I still say it's one of the few times the Academy got the film of the year correct."
