More Info:
  • Jamie Graham

    Iñárritu ditches time-hopping bleakness for a linear, if loopy, satire that buzzes with brio. If Mel Brooks, John Cassavetes and Terry Zwigoff co-directed a superhero movie, this might be it.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Ian Freer

    Birdman is everything you want movies to be: vital, challenging, intellectually alive, visually stunning, emotionally affecting. And welcome back to the big time, Mr. Keaton; you have been sorely missed.

    Empire Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Everything about Birdman is a bold cinematic stretch, from its snare-jazz soundtrack to a climax regrettably stretched too far. The line between Iñárritu's genius and Riggan's madness gets crossed once too many, but no matter. Birdman has 99 virtues and ignorance isn't one.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    From the first line of its deep, rapid-fire dialog all the way through to its trippy ending -- which is guaranteed prompt discussion on the drive home -- Inarritu has crafted a film that begs to be rewatched, with the promise of each repeated viewing bringing something new.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    The thrilling cinematic joyride that, among other improbable feats, puts Michael Keaton, as Thomson, smack in the middle of the Oscar race for best actor.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Birdman finds Iñárritu in the mood for play, and with a mighty cast that fields every pitch he throws.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    Lots of films claim to be different. Birdman is.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    This is a remarkable feat, not only of cinematography, but of choreography. Just to film Michael Keaton and Edward Norton walking down a Manhattan street, everything had to be timed as in a dance — when the camera swirls ahead, when it goes behind, when it swoops back around. It’s all accomplished so smoothly that it would be worth doing merely as a stunt, except this is no stunt. This method carries the mood and soul of one of the best movies of 2014.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    The bravura gestures work gorgeously in Birdman, as does the humor, which playfully balances the film’s most mystical, contemplative ideas with a steady stream of inside jokes and well-calibrated shifts in tone and dynamics.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Birdman is a treat. But it's also more than that. It's a full-fledged wonder.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    This is a strange and beautiful and unique film, one of the best movies of the year.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    The film is so soaring, sometimes literally, I hardly missed the feeling of hard ground underfoot.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    Birdman is a complete blast from start to finish. Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    With its improvisatory score (drummer Antonio Sanchez provides a hustling backbeat throughout), its seamless shots, its leaps into the surreal, and then back again into the excruciating, embarrassing real, Birdman ascends to the greatest of heights.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    The director's surrealist portrait of modern times and the cult of celebrity is brilliant on so many levels that even the occasional downdraft can't keep Birdman from soaring.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    This pitch-dark comedy, which was directed, con brio, by Alejandro G. Iñárritu, sizzles as the camera circles, stalks and swoops. Emmanuel Lubezki’s friction-free cinematography constitutes a virtuoso turn in its own right in a production that’s strewn with superb performances, some of them loud and bold, others subtle and restrained.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    The camerawork in Birdman is an astonishment, and an argument that everything flows together, which in this movie means the cinematography, the story, the people, even time and space.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    I'm jazzed by every tasty, daring, devastating, howlingly funny, how'd-they-do-that minute in Birdman. Like all movies that soar above the toxic clouds of Hollywood formula and defy death at the box office, Alejandro G. Iñárritu's cinematic whirlwind will bring out the haters. They can all go piss off. Birdman is a volcano of creative ideas in full eruption. Buy a ticket and brace yourself.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Serious and silly, self-aware and ironic, it’s the movie that questions stardom, fame and celebrity, built around a role Michael Keaton had to become a has-been to play.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    A triumph on every creative level, from casting to execution.

    Variety Full Review
  • Cath Clarke

    It's dazzling and rambling, intimate and sprawling, and it's carried along by an infectious, off-the-cuff jazz score. As soon as it ends, you'll be dying to fly with it again.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    The film's exhilarating originality, black comedy and tone that is at once empathetic and acidic will surely strike a strong chord with audiences looking for something fresh that will take them somewhere they haven't been before.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Jessica Kiang

    It’s borderline miraculous.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • John Bleasdale

    Birdman is a rich, startlingly clever and multi-layered collage, with Iñárritu creating a meta-universe of mirrors and performances upon performances.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    Spectacular, star-powered cinema that makes us ask anew what cinema is for. Call it a "Dark Knight" of the soul.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    Birdman is a scalpel-sharp dissection of Hollywood, Broadway, and fame in the 21st century. But more than that, it's a testament to Keaton's enduring charisma and power as an actor. He soars.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Moment to moment, Birdman manages to shift gears, its roaming camera revealing new surprises as it glides along. That degree of unpredictability provides it with the ultimate response to the sea of formulaic mediocrities at the center of its critique.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Catherine Bray

    Birdman dares to be ambiguous, but unlike most essays in ambiguity, it is also a hell of a lot of fun.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Bob Mondello

    Doing a whole movie this way isn't unprecedented, of course. Hitchcock's "Rope" did it without digital trickery more than half a century ago. Still, it's a great cinematic stunt, even when you think you've found the hidden edits. And it makes Birdman as exhilarating a flight of fantasy as you're likely to see anytime soon.

    NPR Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    Birdman, right now, is on the money. In Riggan and the rest of the cast, writhing with the dread of being a nobody but appalled by what it takes to be a somebody, we see not just the acting bug but also the New York bug, the love bug, and, if we’re honest, the life bug, diagnosed as what they are: a seventy-year itch.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    The director has wisely assembled an ensemble of performers who know how to handle a long take; this will certainly rank among Keaton's career highlights — in a role that allows him to completely dump out his paintbox and show a vast range of emotion — but everyone shines.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Birdman takes advantage of every facet of Keaton’s talent, from his knack for absurdist comedy to his seemingly effortless ability to tap into graceful profundity without making a big show of it.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    One of the year's most audacious, savagely funny and unpredictable films, it features an outstanding performance by Michael Keaton as the has-been star of a superhero franchise desperate to be taken seriously.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    It’s perhaps the most incisive and funniest Hollywood take on Broadway since Mel Brook’s original “The Producers.”

    New York Post Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Keaton reminds us what a fine actor he could always be.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    For Michael Keaton, Birdman is some kind of gift from the movie gods, a license to have his cake and messily devour it too.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    This is no tale told by an idiot — on the contrary, it’s a funny, fast-moving parable about fame and ambition, laid out for us with care and craft by a gifted filmmaker, a long-missed actor, and a world-class cinematographer. But I’m left with the suspicion the whole thing may signify — well, if not nothing, at least a good deal less than the filmmakers would have us believe.

    Slate Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    It’s undeniably thrilling to watch Gonzalez Iñárritu and Keaton aiming so high. Whenever they’re brave enough to leap into the unknown, Birdman soars.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Yes, at its best, Birdman soars, swoops and flutters with life and invention, but it parrots more than it speaks. You long for a writer as reliably, elegantly witty as Tom Stoppard, whose dramas are typically “backstage,” or if not Stoppard, at least a verbal speed-puncher like Armando Iannucci, or if not Iannucci, someone as relentlessly inventive and obsessive as Charlie Kaufman to make you feel like somebody is trying to say something, rather than a writing team filling in the intelligent-sounding words to support the boisterous performances and the virtuosic camera dance.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Birdman proves that a movie — the grabbiest, most kinetic film ever made about putting on a play — can soar on the wings of its own technical prowess, even as the banality of its ideas threatens to drag it back down to earth.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The movie is punctuated by comedy that at times verges on slapstick but there's an underlying anger in evidence - anger at the popular mindset that allows movies like "Transformers" to flourish while artistic endeavors fail.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Birdman is a marvelously entertaining picture, a work of "look at me!" bravado that's energized every minute. Its proficiency, the mechanically fluid kind, works against it in some ways.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • James Rocchi

    This is not a film in need of creativity, passion or energy; what it needed was restraint, consideration and direction. This is not saying that Birdman is awful, or a debacle; there are superb scenes here, as well as excellent performance moments, but they get drowned out in the flood of Iñárritu’s ambition, energy and fantasies. Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Birdman is the very definition of a tour de force, and Iñárritu’s overheated technique meshes perfectly with the (enjoyable) overacting—the performers know this is a theatrical exercise and obviously relish the chance to Do It Big. But what comes out of the characters’ mouths is not so fresh.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Xan Brooks

    There’s no doubt it makes for a jubilant ride, a galvanic first blast. But it remains a film which feels deeply thought rather than deeply felt; a brilliant technical exercise as opposed to a flesh-and-blood story.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    A movie with ambitions as high-flying as its superhero but a success rate decidedly lower to the ground.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • R. Kurt Osenlund

    It places regurgitated ideas into the mouths of gifted actors, then drops them amid a kooky story that plays like an elaborate distraction from what little the film actually has to say.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Alejandro González Iñárritu is a pretentious fraud, but it’s taken some time to understand the precise nature of his fraudulence.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    An unrecognizable Michael Keaton seems to have aged 40 years since the last time he appeared on the screen, but he’s still the best (i.e., only) reason to suffer through a miserable load of deranged, deluded crap masquerading as a black comedy called Birdman.
