Birdman. Epic Is The Trending Word To Describe It.

January 18, 2015

I would say Superb!.

There’s a slight possibility that it’s with superheroes. Slighter that it’s not. Birdman. Yet again, no trailer, no reviews for me. And the rest is fireworks!

You must see the movie in theatre or if you, still, prefer to see it at home, please make sure your sound system is the best. The music is the second main character, together with Michael Keaton, the Birdman himself. It goes from drums, to piano, to violin, in the end. I was going to say that you are the third main character. Yes, you. You are the third one!

But then there’s the music again. You, again. It’s like you know each other. And you’re scheming. Or acting together all along. You’re there, just like the rest of the main cast is: Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts. And, then, there’s the city. New York City is a character all over again. It’s the land where anything is possible to such an extent that you don’t even know anymore what’s right and what’s not. In this world. In this lifetime. But then again, who’s to say what’s right and what’s not? Who’s to put you down? And who’s to rise you up? There’s only you.

A man becomes a critic when he cannot be an artist, in the same way that a man becomes an informer when he cannot be a soldier, Gustave Flaubert

And you’re just one of the billions, on a planet that’s been here for over billions of years.

I keep on writing and deleting. There’s so much to say, my fingertips itch. But I won’t. For you.

PS: I just watched the trailer now. Don’t! Please don’t! Just go! Go! To the theatre or, directly, to your living room.

Birdman won the Golden Globe for lead actor in a motion picture – comedy or musical (Michael Keaton) and an Oscar for Best Motion Picture of the Year, Best Achievement in Directing (Alejandro G. Iñárritu), Best Writing, Original Screenplay (Alejandro G. Iñárritu, Nicolás Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris , Armando Bo), Best Achievement in Cinematography
(Emmanuel Lubezki)! There should’ve been more: Actor in leading role. Actor in supporting role (Edward Norton). Actress in supporting role (Emma Stone), Sound editing, Sound mixing!

This PS and this is it: Birdman has just made it to my all time favourite list.

In your mailbox would be ideal, yet in your e-mail is pretty close, yay!
