My opinion : Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), commonly known simply as Birdman, is a 2014 American black comedy film directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu. It was written by Iñárritu, Nicolás Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris Jr., and Armando Bo. The film stars Michael Keaton with a supporting cast of Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough, Amy Ryan, Emma Stone, and Naomi Watts. Synopsis : A washed-up superhero actor attempts to revive his fading career by writing, directing, and starring in a Broadway production. Birdman is a masterpiece. From it’s long shots (there are only 16 shots in this entire 2 hour movie) to it’s thrilling and riveting performances by Emma Stone, Michael Keaton and Zack Galifianakis going at the top of their game. The movie transcends into a richly constructed drama about a man whose lost his touch in the television genre layered by its powerful symbolistic imagery that’ll leave cineastes in awe. 9.4/10
