Honestly it is very hard to speak about it without spoiler, so if you want to see it go, and back after to read this review, you will probably disagreed with my point of view, so let a feedback if you want to discuss.
Thomson Riggan, an actor goes to Brodway to make a representation of a book to make a drama it is called » When we talk about love » or « The unexpected virtue of ignorance”.
We learned that Thomson is tourmante by his former role in “Birdman” It is almost schizophrenic and imagines that he have power of Birdman he wants to detach took everything of his birdman image that people have of him throughout the film.
His ego, ( Symbolizes by a second voice in his head who is the Birdman), his family, his loves, all is challenged for himself.
The scenes when the ego of Riggan takes top are impossible to describe they are so epic, this film is just so full of originality.
The first sequence sets the tone of the movie, is absolutely masterful, so if you dont like it, just stop, you will not like the film .
The strength of this film is also in its soundtrack. The music perfectly correspond to the universe that this film offer, and complement him.W e did not realize it instantly, but musics carry us , and it’s because of the musics that the film is awesome because this movie is not very rich in action.
Some confusion is permanent during the film, and the end enlightens us , Birdman stay in the toilet and Riggan manages to finally split to him for the last minute
.After watching the film, you need to reflect on it, and make you own opinion.
