IT comes at no surprise that Birdman is scooping up several awards and nominations at this years most prestige ceremonies within the film industry. Firstly it is directed by acclaimed director Alejandro G. Iñárritu and secondly there is Michael Keaton in his most ambitious role to date. So if you have been hiding under a rock, here are the many reasons why you need to see this unexpected virtue of ignorance.

Last year I had the privilege of seeing an early screening of this incredible story, and I was completely blow away by its obscure direction and informative insight into human behaviour. With one watch of the trailer you might be confused with the overall direction of Birdman, but in a nutshell the visionary film follows Riggan a washed up actor who once played an iconic superhero, who is stuck trying to overcome his ego and family troubles, at the same time as mounting a new Broadway play in a bid to reclaim his past glory.

Ok, so have I got your attention yet? Well if I don’t then this film is purely not for you. Birdman is a great example of exceptional film making and it has made director Alejandro G. Iñárritu one of the most sort out film makers in Hollywood. Actor Michael Keaton who originally played the iconic Batman in Tim Burton’s tales of the dark knight, makes a bold ironic statement in this role, that is an exaggerated representation of his own career which is very poetic, in its own right.

Another major point is that Birdman has already scooped up two awards from the Golden Globes and will certainly be gathering more with SAG awards and the Oscars. So you don’t miss out and can have a clear understanding of why this film deserves this recognition, it is worth your consideration and support to allow this film to succeed.

Joining Keaton in this unique film, is fellow nominee Naomi Watts, Emma Stone, funny man Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton and Andrea Riseborough. Another five reasons to watch this film!
