Birdman (2014)

Review by-Jarrett Leahy

Riggan Thomson, a washed up movie star best known for playing the superhero, Birdman, attempts to rejuvenate his floundering career by directing and starring in an adaptation of the Broadway play, “What We Talk About When We Talk About Love.” But as a myriad of mounting pre-production disasters pushes Riggan to the brink of a nervous collapse, he must fight back his personal inner demons, and a vindictive theater critic, or risk losing everything he has desperately poured into this laborious comeback.Born in Mexico City, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu is a filmmaker who, sadly, doesn’t get the recognition and acknowledgment from the average moviegoer his undeniable talents should demand. 895 more words
