birdman

This review was supposed to come out in honor of the Oscar nominations being released last week.  However, I haven’t had much time until now so it’s a little late.  But here I am with my review for last year’s Best Picture winner that I hadn’t seen until last week.

Birdman is about an actor struggling to stay in the spotlight (Michael Keaton) after playing a superhero earlier in his career.  As a last ditch effort, he decides to direct and star in a Broadway play, hiring a hot shot actor (Edward Norton) in the process.
