Reviewing the Best Picture of the Year

Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) won the the Academy Award for best picture and director, and it really deserves it. Birdman was hands down one of the most psychological and interesting movies I have ever seen. I wish I had the chance to experience this movie in theaters. Birdman just played with my head the whole entire time I watched it, Only one other movie has done that before and that was Inception.

Alejandro G. Iñárritu shot the film in a way to make it look like a continuously long shot. Birdman was just extremely vivid in its colors and shots that it felt like you where with the cast and crew the whole entire time. It takes a special skill to make a movie feel like its real or you can walk right into it and Birdman accomplishes that.

Michael Keaton did an amazing job. I have only seen Michael Keaton as the main star in one other movie and that was Tim Burton's Batman. Keaton really brought life and and character into his character making you fell bad for him. Keaton's character had his sad moments and his funniest moment but all together it was Keaton portraying a person not a superhero. The supporting cast was amazing also with Norton, Galifinakis, Stone and many others they brought the movie to life. Watching this movie you wont see Keaton's Batman you'll see Keaton's washed up actor Riggian Thompson . Just like Keaton Thompson is trying to get rid of his past superhero career.

Out of all the contenders for this years best picture Birdman really did outlast all the other contenders. Even though American Sniper, The Imitation Game, and Boyhood were all excellent movies Birdman definitely pushed through to show its potential. All in all Birdman is hands down one of the best movie I have seen in a while.

  1. I agree that this was filmed well and that the acting was great but however I personally did not enjoy this film. I thought that it was too slow and hard to follow
