{4.5/5} “You’re no actor, you’re a celebrity. Let’s be clear on that. I’m gonna kill your play.”

Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), released in 2014

Riggan played a superhero named Birdman in the old days. Now he’s trying to direct and star in a Broadway production of a play he wrote. When he hires Mike, a famous actor who will bring in the audience, it seems he’s a powder keg that could go off at any moment. The movie is about acting and celebrityism. It’s filmed as if it’s one long take, and the soundtrack is full of drums. I didn’t really like the last scene, as it contradicts the rest of the movie. Michael Keaton is mesmerizing as Riggan. Edward Norton and Emma Stone also star. Directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu.
