Birdman of Alcatraz Reviews

Fernando F. Croce
CinePassion

An exhaustive abstraction of the John Frankenheimer social outcast

Frankenheimer's compelling, if slightly fictionalized biopic of Robert Stroud is extremely wel acted by Burt Lancaster and the rest of the cast, including Thelma Ritter and Telly Savalas.

Film Threat

This preachy bio pic is a hokey take on the birdman with Lancaster being misused on every occasion.

| Original Score: 1/5

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Prison biopic that's more interested in its liberal message about prison reform working for redemption than in anything else.

Nick's Flick Picks

Even with its limping screenplay and general drift toward competence rather than excellence, Birdman does pull us well enough into its fistful of compelling characters.

Apollo Guide

Lancaster's brilliant performance anchors Frankenheimer's fine film, a liberal-minded, optimistic celebration of the power of redemption.
