Ego and Illusion in "Birdman"

Birdman is a complex film.  Having only just finished a piece on The Grand Budapest Hotel, I find this a little intimidating.  Now, The Grand Budapest Hotel is an outstanding movie — stunningly filmed, acted, written, etc. 4,372 more words

Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) was the 2015 winner for Best Picture at the Oscars and I’m sure few are surprised.  The movie has excellent performances, directing, cinematography, lighting, screenplay, the editing is flawless, the score is amazing, sound design and mixing…  It’s a really f@cking good movie.   585 more words

BiRDMAN OR (THE UNEXPECTED ViRTUE OF iGNORANCE) (2014) - 悲劇精神再現

^得獎海報!(其實BiRDMAN在美術方面亦很高超,不過被攝影搶盡鏡而已。)

看戲最幸福的事,對你來講已經是達不到,就是從來沒有讀過相關的影評,當它不存在;第二幸福對你來講就是——不要讀下去。

BiRDMAN的意涵,我會說「比你想像中的簡單,比你想像中的深奧」,這個你也不必是你,只是我觀看不同評論和感言得出的結論。這篇文大概不是評論,更像分析(其實一直如此)……大量劇透無可避免,對我這個入場兩次,已閱讀完整劇本的人來說,當然算不上甚麼。而若然閣下執持要讀文,便讀吧!

Alejandro González Iñárritu是個了不起的電影人,暫時電影長篇作品還不算多,來自墨西哥的他第一部執導的電影長篇Amores Perros已被作佛學哲學解讀,而往後的Babel和21 Grams繼續保持無常和多線敍事風格,故事嚴肅是典型的art house作品,這次第一部原創電影長篇劇本,居然玩起黑色幽默來,認真估佢唔到之餘,亦獲得眾多頒將單位垂青。但同時因與Boyhood等強手爭奪殊榮,人紅是非多,相較Boyhood和The Grand Budapest Hotel更受爭議(在香港卻是Boyhood(或許在製作單位界別中,美國本土也有極大爭議致令失獎),對香港來說Boyhood是TVB,Transformer is the real deal……alas)。

以下是有關電影與劇本的分析…

電影在鼓聲的引導下,引出Raymond Carverh的詩,也是他的墓上刻文︰

And did you get what…

Review

[Review] Birdman – What We Talk About When We Talk About Love.

สิ่งที่ผมหลงรักในศาสตร์ของภาพยนตร์อย่างหนึ่งคือความกลบกล่อมของทุกองค์ประกอบเล็กน้อยยิบย่อยต่างๆที่ใส่เข้ามา อย่างใน Birdman เล่าเรื่องราวของ  Riggan Thomson (Michael Keaton) อดีตดาราซุปเปอร์ฮีโร่ ผู้ตอนนี้ตกอับและอยากหวนคืนวงการด้วยละครเวที 19 more words
