I did, indeed, hate Birdman in all kinds of expected ways, as stated above, I also despised it in ways that completely took me by surprise, and yes, this goes beyond the crashing cymbals in Antonio Sanchez's earache-inducing score.
I expected the films content to be as dynamic as the aesthetic, instead what I got was a film that contented itself with portraying a surface-level story of a man pining for glory and allowing others to define not only its form but its terms and conditins
Makes you question what's real and not, but doesn't follow through. Two thirds of a absolutely brilliant film that in the end made me want to throw a brick through the screen. Goes completely off the rails.
