Has anyone seen Birdman?

That movie was so good. I think the cast should get at least three oscar nominations. Did anyone else watch it? I have something written about it on a journal I started.

I'm amazed why they didn't advertise this movie.  I had to YT and IMDB it to see that it's really highly rated.  The cinematography is highly unique and I can already see the appeal.

it looks like the movie hancock. I don't understand where the appeal is. on the surface it looks like a cheap action movie with stilted dialogue. I am confused..

I really was expecting a Birdman superhero movie but instead, was hit with a drama about a used-up actor trying to reclaim his fame.  I fail to see why this was so highly rated.  People really need to stop being so mesmerized by novel camera techniques.  However, the camera technique added a new dimension to filmmaking so it gets points for that.  But, I was feeling nauseas halfway through. I also feel asleep.

And yeah, the drums were annoying.  It was just improv (and not even good improv [rhythm was not steady so the drummer needs to take music and drumming lessons]), not carefully composed to fit the mood.  So instead of enhancing mood, it actually trivialized the scenes which felt like tossing away used toilet paper.

However, by the end, I didn't feel like flushing so it wasn't that bad.

I'm afraid Brad Mehldau, Pat Metheny, John Scofield and Michael Brecker didn't get the memo or they would have hired a different drummer.

I thought the movie was great, but I could have lived without the last 30 minutes; that goes for my bladder as well.
