I’m still digesting Birdman. Unlike his deft touch with 21 Grams or Babel, Iñárritu’s direction here tends to scream “LOOK AT ME”. The film’s illusory single take and left-of-field soundtrack seem a little on the nose, but despite this there are some standout performances. However, it’s Edward Norton that steals the show with his lively take on a narcissist. The film is worth seeing for his performance alone. There is no doubt that Birdman is stunning to look at but I do wonder if the direction overshadowed the film at little. Enjoyable, but I am still scratching my head on this one.
