• It’s an entirely different beast from his previous gems Amores Perros and Babel, but it’s a film so smart, it’ll leave you giddy with pleasure.

  • What adds to the viewing experience and enhances the psychological effect of the film, is its frenzied background score. Its adrenaline packed leitmotif of the drum score by Antonio Sanchez is effectively used to create and drive home the point of the insanity prevalent in the narration.

    Overall, the film is a must watch for its unconventional presentation, style and performances.

    Birdman, in its 122 minutes’ runtime, transforms into exhilarating cinema that gives a heady rush.

    Birdman is unexpectedly funny and a thoroughly entertaining film.

    Birdman is not just a film, it is an experience and a highly exhilarating one at that. Alejandro González Iñárritu has made quite a few memorable films (Amores Perros, 21 Grams, Babel) but with Birdman, he has not just pushed the envelope he has pushed the whole post office itself.

  • If you find a movie better than Birdman, I’ll clip off my wings, bathe in batter and offer myself on the platter at the nearest KFC.

    Birdman is an impeccable film. It boasts earnest performances by its esteemed cast members and also has a tight storyline. Iñárritu knows what he wants to say and does exactly that. The underlying message of vanity and perils of fame also resound in the script, and stay with you even as the credits roll. It is perhaps the best film of 2014 and deserves to be watched.

  • Birdman embraces the meta-narrative by becoming the duality it explores — the real and the make-believe. At any point, Birdman leaves it open to interpretation whichever way you want to interpret it because it is both. A serious arthouse film wearing a funny movie mask.
