Actor Riggan Thomson is most famous for his movie role from over twenty years ago of the comic book superhero Birdman in the blockbuster movie of the same name and its two equally popular sequels. His association with the role took over his life, where Birdman is more renowned than "Riggan Thomson" the actor. Now past middle age, Riggan is trying to establish himself as a true artist by writing, directing, starring in and co-producing with his best friend Jake what is his Broadway debut, an adaptation of Raymond Carver's story, What We Talk About When We Talk About Love. He is staking his name, what little artistic reputation that comes with that name and his life savings on the project, and as such will do anything needed to make the play a success. As he and Jake go through the process of the previews toward opening night, Riggan runs into several issues: needing to find a replacement for the integral supporting male role the night before the first preview; hiring the talented ...

The words seen in the opening credits are the words written on Raymond Carver's tombstone in real-life: "And did you get what you wanted from this life, even so? I did. And what did you want? To call myself beloved, to feel myself beloved on the Earth." See more »
After the first preview (when Mike was drinking real gin onstage) Riggan and Mike walk out of the St. James Theatre onto 44th street. Riggan gives money to a drummer on the street. The camera swings around, and, apparently still in the same shot, they are now walking towards the Edison Hotel on 47th street. They enter the bar at the Edison Hotel. When Riggan leaves the bar, he is back on 44th street, and walks just a few steps back to the St. James Theatre - closer than when they walked from the theatre to the bar. See more »

I can't understand all the negative reviews on this site by "movie-goers". From some of the comments, I can only assume some of these folks must have ADD, or just need a few good car chases or were expecting this to be one of those mindless, predictable super hero movies we are afflicted with ad nauseam these days. Thank god it wasn't one of those.
The actors are marvelous, especially Keaton. Perhaps he finally gets the credit he is due with that little gold statue. Edward Norton is great as usual. Emma Stone will certainly be recognized as well and probably be in line for meatier parts in the future. Iñárritu's scene transitions are especially wonderful giving the impression of one long take that seamlessly takes you through the story. The story kept my undivided attention the entire way.
Great movie! A must see.
