‘Birdman’ Soars, Swoops Through Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Broadway Fantasy: N.Y. Film Fest

13 October 2014 10:51 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

After a brief, sci-fi-style opening of a comet hurtling through the atmosphere, Birdman begins with a through-the-door view of Michael Keaton, seen from the back sitting cross-legged in a shabby Broadway dressing room, wearing nothing but white briefs and perched midair several feet above the furniture. He rotates to set his feet on the floor and with pointed finger sends a vase gliding across a table. The unbroken sequence tells us two things with economy and grace: That the camera will be our guide through Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s backstage tale, and that the story itself won’t be bound by realism. It will instead unfold with the unsettled and unsettling restlessness of a troubled soul in search of a resting place.

Our uneasy pilgrim is Riggan Thomson, an action-movie star whose sell-by date has long since passed. As fully embodied by Keaton, his once virile visage now seems dessicated »

Nicole Kidman's Grace of Monaco turns down Alfred Hitchcock - watch

5 June 2014 8:32 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Nicole Kidman's performance as actress-turned-royal Grace Kelly in Grace of Monaco prompted plenty of attention.

In this clip from the film, Kidman's Grace turns down an approach from Alfred Hitchcock (Roger Ashton-Griffiths) to return to the silver screen to play the title role of Margaret 'Marnie' Edgar.

Kelly's rejection meant that Hitchcock briefly shelved the project to work on The Birds, where he gave Tippi Hedren her screen debut

When he returned to Marnie a year later, he opted to keep his leading blonde, who starred opposite "some Scottish fellow" that Cubby Broccoli was raving about.
