Birdman (2014)

At the 87th Academy Awards in February 2015, Birdman won four Oscars, for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Cinematography.


Birdman was directed by Alejandro G Inarritu, who was part of the team who wrote it.

Michael Keaton stars as Riggan Thomson, an actor best known for his film role as the superhero Birdman.  Edward Norton stars as Mike Shine, Andrea Riseborough as Laura Aulburn (Riggan’s girlfriend), Emma Stone as Riggan’s daughter, Sam.  Zach Galifianakis takes the role of Riggan’s lawyer and friend, Jake.  Naomi Watts is Lesley Truman, Mike’s girlfriend, an actress cast in the play.  Amy Ryan is Riggan’s ex-wife and Sam’s mother.

Altogether it was nominated for 9 Academy Awards.  It should be fabulous.  I have just seen it.  I didn’t like it.  What is wrong with me?
