Serious as a poodle in a miniskirt sipping on an apple martini

What could have been a stunt turns into a visual rollercoaster that propels the action forward constantly while creating a unique and stylish palette for the story.

Here not a single performance falters.

The entire film was shot to resemble a single long take and its cast included Edward Norton, Zach Galifianakis, and Emma Stone. Need we say more?

In general, Birdman is entertaining (Keaton and Norton are both excellent), although somewhat overheated

Birdman: or the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance is a highly imaginative film that delivers on a compelling story and brilliantly executed technique with the camera.
July 7, 2020
A big, bold movie, the kind that takes aesthetic and thematic risks, and that grabs you from frame one and practically screams at you to pay attention. It's also very convinced of its own cleverness.

That analogy of the ups and downs of fame that shakes actors in the entertainment culture, is what keeps it flying at the heights of the best movies of the year. [Full review in Spanish]

...this is one film that deserves the descriptor of tour de force.
January 9, 2020
A sprawling, thrilling film that, for better and worse, is one of the most fully realized personal visions to hit screens in years.

When it comes to filmmaking, the Michael Keaton-starring Birdman (or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) is a unique achievement in cinema.

Two hours of Birdman is 110 minutes too many.

Birdman is essentially a simple story that is made extraordinary by its direction, cast and concept.
September 6, 2019
It's one of the most invigorating and passionately rendered films you could hope to see in this or any other year.
August 8, 2019
Ed Norton and Emma Stone are both devastating. And Michael Keaton walks a high wire with his meta portrait of the actor as a washed-up superhero. Birdman's juicy script is rife with satirical insights about acting and writing.
August 2, 2019
It is Keaton's portrayal that drives the movie, and makes it so memorable.
July 30, 2019
Despite its lack of clarity, conflicting thematic messages and indecipherable tone, the film is the rarest of oddities: accidental genius.
July 16, 2019
Birdman sidesteps the inside baseball stigma of most behind the scenes films by transcending being a story about fame or Hollywood. Rather, it functions as a sobering meditation on the destructive double-edged sword of validation.
July 5, 2019
Bravura filmmaking, a jaw-dropping directorial feat for Iñárritu.
May 31, 2019
Birdman is a sharp, tour de force satire on so many related things... It's so full of details that as soon as it was over, I wanted to watch it all over again to appreciate what I'd missed.
