Alejandro González Iñárritu News

LOL: Sesame Street’s ‘Birdman’ Parody Is Oscar-Worthy Not many of us can relate to Riggan Thomson’s exact predicament, because not many of us got world-famous playing avian heroes. But you know who can? Caroll Spinney, the puppeteer behind Big Bird, in this pitch-perfect spoof of Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s Birdman. Big Birdman: The Unexpected Virtue of Orange Pants follows Spinney as he asks himself questions like “How did we get here?” and gets advice from a certain giant bird. Watch the Sesame Street Birdman parody after the jump.

Original ‘Birdman’ Ending Took Aim at Another Big Film Franchise Birdman, directed byAlejandro González Iñárritu from a script by Alexander Dinelaris, is pretty cynical about Hollywood product. But if things had gone the way the film was originally scripted, it would have ended with an even more pointed jab at the studio franchise machine. In the film, Michael Keaton plays an actor whose most popular role, Birdman, haunts him as he attempts to mount a stage play. The parallels between Birdman and Batman are impossible to miss.

Film Review: Birdman

Latino Review - Fri, 2014-10-17 09:33

The layers blurring reality and fantasy run deep with Alejandro González Iñárritu’s new film, Birdman, both within the story and in real life. Iñárritu had become known for his trilogy of everything-is-connected mope-fests (Amores Perros, 21 Grams, and Babel), and then followed those up with a widely panned film called Biutiful that straightened out the narrative intricacies but still kept all the misery porn. So what to do next?

Alejandro González Iñárritu is one of the most interesting filmmakers working right now, and his new movie 'Birdman' is a technical leap forward, wrapped around some great performances by Edward Norton, Naomi Watts, and especially Michael Keaton in a role that should make 'Batman' fans howl.http://www.hitfix.com/blogs/motion-captured

New York 2014 Review: BIRDMAN, A Visual and Comedic Feast For The Eyes and Mind This year's New York Film Festival came to a satisfying conclusion with one of its best selections, Birdman, or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), the oddly titled (and punctuated) fifth feature by acclaimed Mexican filmmaker Alejandro G. Iñárritu.

In Alejandro González Iñárritu’s ‘Birdman’ (which will close the New York Film Festival this weekend and, I'll add, is my favorite movie of the year), Michael Keaton plays Riggan Thomson, a veteran actor whose biggest claim to fame is that he used to be in a series of superhero movies. Now, Riggan is attempting to make his comeback by staging a Broadway play based on a Raymond Carver short story.

Does our ego control us, or do we control our ego? Where can it/where does it take us? Will we fly or will we fall? Alejandro González Iñárritu's latest film Birdman is easily lovable for many reasons - from its honest characters and original story to the technical prowess behind the lens and many layers of its style. It's also one of those films where there are so many moments, so many lines, so many scenes where as soon as I've watched them, I want to pause, rewind, and watch them again to delve deeper into the context.
