Birdman (2014) - Innarritu is masterful as the director and Keaton is on top once again



Alejandro Inarritu directed and won 3 Oscars all together along with his cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki who won an Oscar for his amazing artistic achievement in making the movie look like it was being filmed in all one shot.


Inarritu is a groundbreaking director who also co-wrote the screenplay and led an all star cast starring Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone who were all nominated for Oscars as well. Keaton is magnificent as an aging comic book movie star and he brings his full background to this role. He could have easily won an Oscar but this, either way, was his comeback film. Everyone shines in this movie.


Innarritu made a masterpiece with this one and I am sure there are many more to come.
