An exhaustive abstraction of the John Frankenheimer social outcast
January 8, 2011
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.

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

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

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.
