Their characters are quirky, but relatable enough to succeed and feature several darkly comedic moments. There's also several supporting turns that are very good. Birdman has some important topics to discuss when it comes to performances arts, from commercialism to the overreaching power of critics, and even how much actors sacrifice for their careers. It reaches a little too far in spots and some of the psychedelic scenes feel out of place, but ultimately this is an excellent film that should be seen by cinema lovers or jaded filmgoers.
