The film, with nine Oscar nominations and Argentine script, is a fable about fame, identity, and own and others' perception
The history part with a simplicity that overwhelms: Riggan is a veteran actor who is around 60 years old, rundown, egocentric, divorced, estranged father with a drug-addicted daughter, his only hit was made of a superhero named Birdman for movies three times. Now he wants to redeem himself in the theater adapting, directing and starring in a work of Raymond Carver. At his side, his crazy lover (Andrea Riseborough) and an actress made a mass hysteria to perfection by starring Naomi Watts, accompanying, but an accident makes her co-star player and must remain boarding call a theater star: Mike (Edward Norton) is a renegade, nihilist whose art becomes the first of his life, who will bring the biggest problems. But Riggan also has a power: he can move things with his mind, besides his alter ego, Birdman, talks to him all the time and pushes him to do incredible things.
So the latest film from Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu ("Amores Perros," "Babel") directing dramatically, a film that intrudes into the theater, the actors with their miseries and selfishness moves, touches Side the film world and makes a sharp and bitter criticism theater columnists. The script written by the director with Alexander Dinelaris with Argentine Nicolás Giacobone and Armando Bo, acute and sincere shows these characters of flesh and blood, with a naturalness in dialogue surprising way. To highlight are the scenes with theater critic, reaching a level where sparks sharp dialogues leave the audience breathless. This two very important factors add up to make "Birdman" an original movie. First the direction of the film does not break, making sequence shots that seem to never cut, giving an overwhelming continuity and second soundtrack written by Antonio Sánchez, based solely on drum solos that accompany the vicissitudes of the protagonist, detailing their emotional state and mental at every step.
But to make it round the originality of this film, besides from a flawless script, a lofty address a technical-artistic areas spotless, the film is based on extraordinary actors headed by Michael Keaton ("Batman") that hooded know something. Your Riggan is an actor who suffers, screams and breathes truth; by far the best performance I've given throughout his career, which is saying something after 40 years on the screen and made 46 films. Beside shine all but perhaps Emma Stone ("Magic Light of the Moon") that excels more in the role of the daughter of Riggan, a young girl who seems not quite knowing where it goes or she does, but when her father lecturing done in a way that leaves and leaves us without knowing that replicate. Within the side, another champion in this section is the road Zach Galifianakis (from the series "hangover”) Who plays the role of lawyer and producer Riggan, who cares as better known and this gives it funniest moments beside Keaton, in addition to steal a few scenes.
"Birdman or Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance" is a truly original and attractive not for those looking for the usual entertainment when they go to the movies, but for those who want to get away from the Hollywood standard with an adult, funny movie film, but serious, with an acidity that flavored the history of transcendental form.
