Birdman tied The Grand Budapest Hotel with the most Oscar nominations this year—nine–including Best Picture, Best Director (Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu), Best Actor (Michael Keaton), Best Supporting Actor (Edward Norton), Best Supporting Actress (Emma Stone), Best Original Screenplay, and on and on. Months ago, the Variety reviewer called it “blisteringly hot-blooded [and] defiantly anti-formulaic…a triumph on every creative level…that will electrify the industry.” This turned out to be true. Cannibalizing his own disappointing career, Keaton, plays a has-been movie star who launches a vanity production on Broadway to regain the limelight. Norton, in a fine performance, plays his co-star and erstwhile rival. A seamless pastiche of the real and the surreal, at once funny and touching, it is indeed one the year’s best films. We showed it at FilmColumbia last fall, but are bringing it back for those who may have missed it, or want to see it a second time.—Peter Biskind

“A funny, frenetic, buoyant and rambunctiously showboating entertainment in which Mr. Iñárritu himself rises high and then higher still.”—Manohla Dargis, New York Times

“Birdman represents not just Keaton’s fictional apologia but also his defiant, nearly heroic comeback.”—Richard Corliss, TIME Magazne

“There’s no question that the film gets at various flavors of modern madness with an intensity that can be punishing, but never less than fascinating.”—Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

“By focusing on the specific problems of a man undergoing a midlife meltdown, Birdman delivers an incisive commentary on celebrity culture, ambition, social media and fractured families.”—Claudia Puig, USA Today

“Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman is so good, so profoundly entertaining, so confident that it makes you wonder whether the other Iñárritu — the director of such weighty magazine spreads as 21 Grams, Babel, and Biutiful — was a fraud all along.”—Wesley Morris, Grantland

“How can you not be in awe of the sheer physical achievement, of the intricate choreography of the actors and the camera, of the gung ho performances? When it ends you go, “Whew!” It’s a triumph of vacuous virtuosity.”—David Edelstein, New York Magazine
