I honestly think they could have done a better job with this movie. Not sure why it is nominated for best picture, but it's not my cup of tea. The plot is weak and some acting is even weaker, which makes it funny because it's about a play. The dialog is long and sometimes lots of words have been used but nothing is said.

I kind of crazy movie. It is not about they giving us «old-fashioned apocalyptic porn» like «Birdman: The Phoenix Rises.» «They love blood. They love action. Not this talky, depressing, philosophical bullshit» That's hilarious, because that's what the movie may look to the mainstream audience and that's exactly what they were expecting from Birdman. Bravo!

A thrilling leap forward for director Alejandro González Iñárritu, Birdman is an ambitious technical showcase powered by a layered story and outstanding performances from Michael Keaton and Edward Norton.

"I'm nothing. I'm not even here."

'Birdman' was my most anticipated film of 2014. But just like every time I really wanted to see a film so baldy I have to wait for a while until I finally get a chance to watch it. Story of my life really. But anywhere, I finally saw the f More

Michael Keaton leads the charge as a teetering schizophrenic actor, struggling to find validation on Broadway after a long, expired run as a glossy Hollywood blockbuster-dweller.

On a purely technical level, it's astounding. Precisely edited to appear as though the whole thing were executed i More
