An extraordinary achievement

"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. Subtitled The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance, this audacious, modestly-budgeted indie could never have been produced within the Hollywood system without major changes that would have relinqu... read more

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

A very good movie

I already saw this movie, in fact, I even saw it in the movie theater when it was released but I was quite eager to check it out again. Through the years, the Academy has made some poor choices but, this time around, 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 r... read more

El Zumbador posted a review 5 months, 2 weeks ago

“Este es otro de esos tantos intentos de retratar un contraste y un drama dentro de un ‘’artista’’, generalmente de una vida arruinada, para acertar algún meta-comentario sobre significados en el trabajo de uno, la vida privada siendo consumida por el narcisismo y obsesión con un mencionado trabajo que se termina comiendo más de lo que debería en tu también mencionada vida. Birdman busca darte una imagen del mundo del espectáculo en forma de cuento trágico-disparatado a lo 8½ o Sunset Boulevard, siendo casi igual de exagerada y sobre-dramática, pero con algo más de jugo para sacar de cosas como su protagonista o la intención de su final.
