Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) ★★★★½

~Bird is the Word~

The Good: This is a brilliantly crafted story of one mans' personal and professional redemption. Keaton is wonderful as usual, but Norton truly steals the show. Stone is also as impressive as I've seen her.

Loved the usage of the "ever moving camera" technique. You truly feel as if you're behind the scenes on Broadway!

It's goofy, unbalanced and downright strange sometimes, but it pulls it off anyway.

The Bad: Wasn't a huge fan of all the drumming, but I understand they did it to create pace.

The Bottom Line: Deserving of Best Picture (when many winners these days are not)
