"Birdman" is a film written and directed by Alejandro G. Iñarritu, which is in my opinion one of the best mexican directors of all time. This film is about an actor called Riggan (Michael Keaton) who is very famous for the role of a superhero called Birman that he portrayed back in 1992. But now in today's times we get to see this actor in the lowest point of his career, and during this point of his life he is involved in a theater acting in a play, and the film is about how he has to move foward this project along to get everything working.
I going to be honest here, the first time i watched this film was back in 2014, i saw this film in theaters. I was younger back then and my first reaction to this film was: I like this film, is an enjoyable watch. But yesterday my brain said to me (i don't now why): Hey Max, maybe you should watch "Birdman" again. So i watched this film again last night, and oh my god...I cannot believe that when i saw this film the first time, i said: Is a good movie. The only word that i can describe this film is a masterpiece.
This kind of films are not make as usual as some people may think, "Birdman" is a film that is very simple and so original. This entire film is just one take, i don't know how they edited this movie. I mean, there are parts of the movie where we see characters walking into dark rooms and you can say: Thats were they cut that scene - but in this film it feels unnoticeable, and it also makes you wander what is going to happen next, makes it unpredictable, and it works at second viewing. The cinematography here is amazing, Emmanuel Lubezki is a master at what he does. The performances in this film are all fantastic, Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, all the performances were impeccable. This movie also features a very simple score, that is just made almost entirely with drums.
All things make "Birman" a great movie, but the thing that i'm not going to forget about his film is that it also talks about movies, blockbusters, reviews or critics, parent issues, movie roles, actors. This film is also very philosophical in that aspect and i loved it, and it was easily my favorite part of this movie.
Guys, in the end, "Birman" is a cinematic masterpiece, is a movie that to be really appreciated you have to see the little messages that are hidden beneath the surface, and if you catch them all, this movie will be unforgettable for you. See this film, is you are a film lover, this movie will blown your mind with amazing cinematography, great performances, incredible direction, and an amazing script. I love every second of this film and this film totally deserves a 10/10.
