“Birdman”

This first footage for director Alejandro Iñárritu’s Birdman is quite…interesting. Oh, it’s mystifying too. I like the frenetic way in which the dichotomy between the protagonist’s highs and lows is presented. I know it’s supposed to be a comedy of sorts, but personal struggle stories are usually fodder for their audience to do some serious thinking as well.

Release date: October 17, 2014

Synopsis

Birdman, or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance, is a black comedy that tells the story of an actor – famous for portraying an iconic superhero-as he struggles to mount a Broadway play. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career, and himself.
