Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)


2015 | 119 minutes | Rated R

Birdman is a glorious run-on sentence of a film, a bizarre but welcome transformation in the career of cowriter/director Alejandro Iñárritu, and the platform for maybe three career-best performances. It's also a frustrating work of art that repeats itself mercilessly, falls in love with its own gimmickry, and seems to be unsure of what it's trying to communicate to its viewers. It contains multitudes, contradicts itself, and apologizes for absolutely nothing.
