Actor Riggan Thomson is most famous for his movie role from over twenty years ago of the comic book superhero Birdman in the blockbuster movie of the same name and its two equally popular sequels. His association with the role took over his life, where Birdman is more renowned than "Riggan Thomson" the actor. Now past middle age, Riggan is trying to establish himself as a true artist by writing, directing, starring in and co-producing with his best friend Jake what is his Broadway debut, an adaptation of Raymond Carver's story, What We Talk About When We Talk About Love. He is staking his name, what little artistic reputation that comes with that name and his life savings on the project, and as such will do anything needed to make the play a success. As he and Jake go through the process of the previews toward opening night, Riggan runs into several issues: needing to find a replacement for the integral supporting male role the night before the first preview

What a cool and unusual film that flexes the brain a little and is so entertaining to me. Awesome performance from the top notch cast. Go in to this film expecting to think and to be challenged a bit, because this isn't your standard, run of the mill, general film that you pick up. If you enjoy these different aspects or you can at least appreciate them, you'll have a good time.

First and foremost, this is a drama, not an action movie! There is a two minute bit of "comic book action" near the end, but for the most part this is a very slow, somewhat depressing film about a has been actor trying to show the world his creative side.
