    Awesome movie. I loved it.
    About that telekinesis thing...notice that every scene in wich he uses it, he is alone. Nobody else is seeing

    It was indeed a Flawless movie....hahahaha However, I love how you didn't say ANYTHING about the amazing director Alejandro Iñarritu and all his amazing work... obviously because he's mexican ...If it was Nolan or Tarantino of course you'll say the name of the director you fucking Gringo!

    I just saw the movie and I don't know why is it so good for everybody. I mean, it's not that I hate it, I liked it, it's completely enjoyable and has its own soul, but for me (maybe it's a bit weird what I'm going to say, but I understand myself okay xD) it's missing something, it's like it's missing something to be what people say it is...

    I have one issue with the film. Some of the characters, or at least it looks like it, just dissappear, only to come back later.

    I used to work in a local movie Theatre and were often having screenings for the press. And a surprisingly high percentage of them take the press document leave without seeing the movie at all.

    Man, fuck Jeremy Jahns. He IS the bitchy critic in the film. Chris's rant in this vid made me think of his review of the same movie straight away! Him and his fans are trash. Stuckmann actually knows his shit when it comes to films!

    I watched Birdman for the first time a couple days ago and man it was great. It touched me greatly and reminded me about my own ego and also my place in the world. It's been a very long time since I watched a movie that made me thinking about myself.

      i liked it at the time of release also, a lot, but i watched it again this year, and it's already starting to date badly.

    • Jack Clare
      Jack Clare 11 months ago

      personally, and i think this review bares it out, i think birdman is an above average movie. the response was inflated by the fact that the movie landscape is so impoverished, that anything even slightly above the norm seems like the best thing of all time.

    well maybe Im the only one whos got the balls to admit I m so stupid that i even thought this was another super hero movie when i saw the trailer and completely insanely angrily disappointed when I watched it. i couldn't relate ro it. it's written specifically to certain audiences not for stupid mutant superhero fan?

  • austin lamonge
    austin lamonge Year ago

    i can tell you after seeing it back in the day and rewatching it he committed sucide at the end all the stuff with him levitating and moving stuff flying etc was all in his imagination the point of the movie though was he proved his daughter wrong she thought he was nothing but in reality his insanity kept boosting ratings on the play even the critic hated him and his other lead but it was actually enhanced by his weirdness but he also succumbed to insanity but embraced it

    Two seconds to say "Alejandro González Iñárritu." Two seconds to talk about a Mexican genius in your video, you chose to talk everything but the director. I'm glad you gave A+, and a shame you chose not to mention him.

    Good thing Birdman was filmed before the Trump era, otherwise Mexican director Iñárritu and Mexican cinematographer Ubekis might have been turned back at the border lol 😂

    A serious masterpiece of film.

  • Aerociviz Nicholas

    The thing with this movie is that people expect the movie to be presented in the same way that most movies are shot; everything important is shown directly, and it doesn't require thought into what's being shown or what exactly is being talked about and in what context of the scenes. That and etc.

  • Nicolaj Vangsgaard

    i think this movie gets at least 50th place in the greatest movies list. some people see it as being on top ten. i have heard some people put it on the number one spot. which means its better than The Shawshank Redemption, Godfather, Godfather 2, Citizen Kane, Schinlders List, Pulp Fiction. the list goes on. and it not at all. its great but it doesn't come close to any of these movies. especially not The Shawshank Redemption which is considered the greatest movie of all time. and it truly is

    Didn't like this movie. It's technically well done, great performances, acting, editing, cinematography and all, I just don't like it's tone, it's style, or the way in which it deals with it's themes; in other words, I am disturbed by it's irreverence. That's all I have to say about Birdman.

    Telepathy does not allow you to move things, it allows you to communicate with someone else with your mind. Telekinesis is the word you're looking for.

    I'm sorry...I liked the movie, but does no one see the parallels between the character Keaton's playing and himself. His character was Birdman, He was Batman...kinda faded out of the public eye, psychological issues on both fronts, ETC....

  • Wander Bear

    BRAVO! I whole heartedly agree! One point that I may be wrong on because no other reviewer has picked up on it, this was about the aftermath of Batman on Keaton's career. He kinda disappeared. There was Beetlejuice and Batman, and that one creepy thriller where he's trying to break into a vault. other than that there wasn't anything memorable. So the Batman dogged him, became this other personality. I felt like this movie was a window into Keaton's life, no one else could play in this movie!

    How well you've explained this movie deserves a subscription!
    Looking forward to more of your reviews.
    You highlighted the values that people tend to miss in this reviewer.
    Some people will get it right away, some people don't. Doesn't mean it is not true.
    Those who hate it goes into the categories of people that the movie itself criticises.
    People who tries to understand it and then still hate it is fine.
    But people who straight up hates it is just.... well, ...

    No one is going to mention the King Kong reference when Naomi Watts said, "I finally made it on Broadway"?

  • Anirudh Viswanathan

    The best part of this movie was the final hour. Keaton just unloads everything he has got on stage.... in the nude. He is embracing his Birdman, not the character itself but that aura, the charisma, the attitude is what he finally takes inspiration from. Also, each and every scene with Birdman is just.... masterful. It was almost like it was exactly what Keaton was going through after he left his role as Batman. The scene with the film critic is one of the best scenes of all time. It is these little moments that are so powerful, it is no wonder that it was nommed for Oscars.

  • blackfox1320
    blackfox1320 Year ago

    Proof that if a film gets Oscar buzz, then all critics automatically love it. This film was okay, but had some glaring plot issues and scene issues. Not to mention the pacing was just off. I will admit the fact that its overrated makes me dislike it, but seriously, it's just an okay film.

    I know this movie is good but I just don't like it. I was expecting something different and that may have influenced my opinion, I know. But I still know it is technically good.
    However, it's just not my type of movie.
    I find all the characters punchable and annoying, I don't like the 'solely drums' soundtrack, the whole movie feels pretentious and I also find really weird how the script seems to gradually forget its own characters. I liked The Revenant, on the other hand.

  • Solidcrock013

    I can't believe people think the story to this movie is shit when they think unrealistic characters with generic screenplay a acting with loud action music counts as a gripping storyline

    I didn't get why people liked this movie so much..I thought it was boring and somewhat depressing..

  • Cameron Hawes
    Cameron Hawes Year ago

    I have NEVER had so much fun watching a movie. Ever. The way it's shot in one continuous take over a couple of days almost entirely inside a theatre makes you feel as if it's live action and you're right there with them. There's no shots of the past or future, no previous storyline or plot so there's no hints of what's going to happen... you're pretty much just thrown into the middle of a clusterfuck and are able to watch it unfold in real time. In addition the fact it's told a great deal through narration inside the mind of the main character makes it that more engaging. That coupled with the amazing acting makes for an unparalleled film. I have yet to find one that captures the same effect.
