Highly recommended: the trippy Keaton - Inarritu comedy Birdman at RFC Dec 5 - 11
A lunatic actor (Michael Keaton, subtly hilarious), once a winged superhero, is the eponymous Birdman. He is staging a comeback in a midtown Manhattan theater in a serious if maladroit play. Thereupon his ego, his family, his career and the actor himself come to raving, hysterical apotheosis. A perfectly insouciant Emma Stone, head-whipping Ed Norton and manic Zach Galifianakis make the film a rave.
Extraordinary vibe created by DP Emmanuel Lubezki.
Run time: 119 min., R.
Dec 5 - 11
