Bird­man Cin­ema

GT (UK) - - SCREEN -

Bored of the seem­ingly never-end­ing stream of tril­lion dol­lar, IMAX 3D CGI-tas­tic block­busters bom­bard­ing your lo­cal cin­ema? En­ter stage left Bird­man – a su­per-meta, blackly funny, and tech­ni­cally as­ton­ish­ing drama guar­an­teed to make you fall back in love with films. Michael Keaton stars as Rig­gan Thom­son, a washed up ac­tor who found fame as the tit­u­lar su­per­hero, and who’s now at­tempt­ing a ‘cred­i­ble’ come­back. That know­ing Bat­man/Bird­man com­par­i­son is just the start, with a script boast­ing com­men­tary on ev­ery­thing from ac­tors to crit­ics, ex­is­ten­tial­ism to su­per­heroes and ev­ery­thing in­be­tween. Daz­zlingly great.
