Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)StarringMichael Keaton, Zach Galifianakis, Edward NortonNaomi WattsEmma Stone

Directed byAlejandro González Iñárritu

Written byNicolás GiacoboneAlexander DinelarisArmando BoAlejandro González Iñárritu

Year: 2014

Plot: Self-aggrandizing, navel-gazing and daydreaming has-been Hollywood actor tries to reinvent himself as a grand theater powerhouse by writing, directing, and starring in an adaptation of Raymond Carver‘s short story.

Pros: Entertaining as hell, smart, ironic and self-aware, shot through with magical realism. The long takes by Emmanuel Lubezki are mesmerizing. Norton and Keaton were born to play narcissistic assholes.

Cons: Zero. Tis a creative success at every level.
