The entire movie is compelling, interesting and smart.

It's a movie that goes beyond asking 'what does it mean to be famous?' and delves into the far more interesting question of 'what does it mean to be human?'

Birdman is a palate cleanser that clears away the taste of over processed, generic Hollywood products. There's a freshness to Alejandro González Iñárritu's film that's zesty and light, but there's also a tremendous depth to it.

With better projects in the future - not another Need for Speed or the studio-botched Robocop remake - I'd say Birdman is the start of a "Keatonaissance."

Keaton's forceful performance creates these realities not with emotion per se but with pure personal power. It's quite the sensation.

If Iñárritu's Biutiful couldn't let up with the ugly horrors of life, this one can't pause to inject some actual humanity into the neuroses of the artist.

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.

This movie does not go the way you expect it to which is the best part. Again, this isn't so much about superheroes as opposed to the artists that bring them to life when they put on the mask.

Those who are dedicated to the art of making movies will go wild for all the acid references to the industry. [Full review in Spanish]

... it is pure virtuosity, provocative, complex... [Full review in Spanish]

In Birdman (or the unexpected virtue of ignorance) there is a lot of anger ... and that's good in a world that has led us to not have it, to hide it, to disguise it... [Full review in Spanish]

... allows us to observe an outstanding Keaton in a character whose internal monologue should have many similarities with real life... [Full review in Spanish]

... Iñárritu frees himself from that... which was gagging and oppressing his voice as narrator. This can be the preview of a new phase. [Full review in Spanish]

To some extent, the plot is a commentary on the career of Keaton and Iñárritu. [Full review in Spanish]

Birdman is a rich, startlingly clever and multi-layered collage, with Iñárritu creating a meta-universe of mirrors and performances upon performances.
February 28, 2018
Under the detailed eye of Iñárritu, the cast play their roles with a naturalism rarely seen in modern mainstream film; they're expressions, gestures, movements and reactions aren't hinged on creating drama - Iñárritu lets his actors just be.
February 28, 2018
Birdman is never less than entertaining - brash, funny, fast-paced and a welcome return to the A-list for Keaton.
February 28, 2018
Birdman is a glorious run-on sentence of a film, a bizarre but welcome transformation in the career of Alejandro Iñárritu...It contains multitudes, contradicts itself, and apologizes for absolutely nothing.
February 28, 2018
Describing Birdman in print only hints at its manic restless flow, driven by Antonio Sanchez's score of weird drum soloing, the constant fluidity of Emmanuel Lubezki's camerawork and the sharp one-liners.

...impossible to resist. [Full Review in Spanish]
