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.
