Have you ever wanted to go backstage in a Broadway theater? Have you ever wanted to see the process and emotion involved in putting on a Broadway play? Have you ever wanted to see a man's mind unravel? This is all very well done in the film Birdman. Through some very cool camerawork, we walk the backstage of the St. James theater. We follow the actors, director, producer and crew through the final days of rehearsals, previews and opening night. We get a special look inside the emotions and neurosis of the director/actor/father/boyfriend/exhusband through some clever scenes and conversations. One scene was a bit long in my opinion, but as a whole the structure of the film was it's strongest suit. Performances were outstanding, this was a very original work that I really liked.
