A washed up actor, who once played an iconic superhero, battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career and himself in the days leading up to the opening of a Broadway play.
Bird man is certainly a different type of film, especially for today's standards.
It's one of those hybrid films which has it's main plot and it's own ideals to it, but also has many other subject matters surrounding it. And a hybrid film is a film made up of different genres because there is elements of romance in there, action, adventure and thrill to name a few.
I think by watching Bird man if you go into intending to get not much out of it then that's exactly what your going to get. This is something which your concentration must be focussed on at all times, where you pay attention to every detail not because you should but because you want to, that's what is clever abut Bird man it wants to interest you and you can't help but be interested in it.
It's clear direction from director Alejandro González Iñárritu demonstrates and shows moral and diverse perspective which dares to be any other than ordinary. I think this is a good film to watch to gain an experience because we have the films which we all know are classics and we have a comfort zone of films we like, but this is worth seeing to get out of that comfort zone and to actually see this one person's perspective and it's different things for different people which I hope a general audience will enjoy. After all it would be dull if an audience went to the cinema to watch something they know they were going to enjoy.
In the opening shot, the viewing point is what appears to be booster rockets from a space shuttle shooting up through the sky.
