    Sober Film Critic James Brown97 - One has to be very comfortable in their own skin to make a movie that, in a sense, makes a mockery of their life's work. It takes a certain artistic fortitude to do this, especially on the 25th anniversary of the individual’s crowning achievement. With this in mind, I've got nothing but respect for Michael Keaton suiting up as Birdman.

    Rob from GuysFilmQuest92 - As we walked towards the theater exit, an older woman told me, a stranger, that she hated the movie. I felt quite different about it than she did, but I can understand where she's coming from. It isn't for everyone, but it's a damn fine film from all aspects.
    Lisa Marie Bowman90 - The film is occasionally pretentious but, in the end, it's still a triumph of pure cinema.

    Bryan Lienesch75 - 'Birdman' is like a three-ring circus. While it's both wonderous and amazing, there's also a little too much going on.
