Fan Commentary for 'Birdman' (2014 film)

How did we end up here?

Birdman is one of the more interesting films I've seen in a while; for one thing, it's presented as if it were filmed all in one take (digitally edited together), which means a lot of the traditional film visual vocabulary has to be substituted for things that will work with a single camera. Plus there's magical realism, meta-elements, references to other films and literature, some thematic ambiguity... all in all, it's exactly the kind of thing I could enthuse about or critique or speculate about for the whole of the film, and I did.

There's a YouTube version, where I took one screenshot every thirty seconds just to give it some video; the idea is you sync it up with the movie (I count down to a place near the beginning) and listen while you watch, but feel free to just watch the video if you're familiar enough with the film.

There's also a downloadable MP3/Podcast version hosted at yourlisten.
