Film Review: Birdman

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.

CS Video: Director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu on the Movie Magic Behind Birdman ComingSoon.net talks to filmmaker Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu about his latest tour de force Birdman, starring Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Amy Ryan, Naomi Watts, Zach Galifianakis and Andrea Riseborough, a unique film that is likely to put Inarritu back in the conversation for awards season. It opens in select cities on October 17.

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.
