Director Alejandro G Iñárritu Writer/s Director, Nicolas Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris, Armando Bo
Starring Michael Keaton, Emma Stone, Edward Norton, Zach Galifianakis, Naomi Watts, Lindsay Duncan
Source of story An original screenplay – some say based on Michael Keaton’s real life after he refused to continue to be Batman.
Elevator Pitch An actor who was once a household name as “Birdman” attempts to restore his reputation by staging a play, which he has written and directs and in which he stars.
Content The whole film appears to have been filmed as one shot, and is nearly all dialogue with a lot of swearing, typical of behind the scenes drama.
A View An enjoyable film with the hero receiving a fantastic putdown from Lindsay Duncan as a theatre critic. The production contains ambiguities which you may or may not find agreeable.
