Birdman is something else
5 second plot: Riggan used to be a successful actor. He was The Birdman, which is sort of a superhero. Like Batman. Now he's trying to direct a play on Broadway. And he wants it very much to be a success. He wants to be great again. But his path to greatness isn't without obstacles.
5 second review: It's not just Michael Keaton that's awesome in this movie. It's everyone. It's a great script, it's got great dialogue and three quarters in it blew my mind. But I must say the no cuts trick didn't do it for me. I guess it's fresh, it's something you don't see every day. But it made me a bit seasick. Also, the camera is too close in everyone's face. Take a step back already, will ya?
