First, I’d like to say sorry to the Academy and to everyone else I will offend. Birdman was a terrible movie. How on earth this won the best picture is beyond me because this was so painful to watch. I understand the story, I understand how personal this was to Michael Keaton, and I also admire how it was shot, but in no way would I ever even consider watching this again. It can be confusing at times, stupid at others, and a complete mess at others. I would never recommend Birdman to anyone but will respect those people who admire this film.
