Birdman

Birdman

Alejandro González Iñárritu

 

Well, hollywood certainly does luv to look at itself in the mirror, doesnt it? Except, of course, if David Lynch happens to be holding the mirror. Birdman joins a select list of introspective, and occasionaly incestuous, films that turn the camera around and expose hollywood for what it really is. Birdman may even be a little better than Sunset Boulevard, Inland Empire or Mullholand Drive. The cinematography is what really sets this film apart. It's shot to look like one, long continuous scene that spans 3 days and includes an aerial segment in which the camera floats, on Birdman's back, high into the sky, and then back down to earth again without a cut—like a play, which it also parodies. Brilliant. Sometimes Oscar gets it right...

NEW FILMS

Inherent Vice

 

An excellent but complicated film adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's novel about the end of the hippies & the beginning of The New World Order.

 

Predestination

 

Time traveling sci fi saga with a twist—literaly. Ethan Hawk does a great job playing vintage versions of his character from the 1970s and 80s.
