2023 movie #34. 2014. Riggan (Keaton) once known for playing Birdman in comic book movies, tries to redeem his career by writing, directing and starring in a Broadway play, while losing his mind. Excellent film, great cast. Won best movie and directing Oscars.

A criminal/psychic/father is dying of cancer.

Watching it is a miserable experience. There are moments of poetry, but it's just not worth it. We've jokingly referred to this movie as Javier Bardem Is Sad. Turns out that is exactly what it is. Javier Bardem is sad for 2½ hours.

An actor who used to play a superhero produces a crappy Broadway play.

For a movie that has so much to say to criticize the artlessness of Hollywood movies, it has very little to offer itself. The characters are cliches, with no development worth mentioning. The big dramatic moments have no emotional weight. And, despite being advertised as a comedy and having a very funny cast, it has less humor than most good dramas. The One Long Take gimick would be pretty cool and impressive if this were a suspense film. In a comedy, it's a disaster. And a two hour drum solo? My head still hurts.
