Directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu
It feels so unworthy to describe Birdman as just a film: it’s more of a pure, cinematic experience, with masters of the craft behind the wheel. Within ten minutes, you know that the filmmakers knew exactly what they were trying to do from the get go, and they absolutely knocked it out of the park. The script is sharp, self-referential and incredibly intelligent, the performances are hypnotising and outrageous, and the cinematography has to be among of the most impressive of the last century. Don’t even get me started on the soundtrack. There’s no way I can even begin to describe the plot of the film and possibly do it any justice. Just please watch it. And tell your friends.
