When I saw pro. critic ratings of "100" a red flag should have gone off. This is the Emperors clothing remix. Yes, it was not cookie cutter Hollywood, yet, it was arties ad nausem, to the point where nothing makes any sense (at least 2 us idiots who R not artists or critics). The later will make sense out of a roll of scrabble letters if it makes them look and feel good.
Senseless - in a word. Birdman? I no the Keaton somehow got the roll of Batman for a bit. Was there ever a man who less fit the chactor of Bruce Wayne - strong, smart, handsome, etc. like Keaton? He did not have muscles in Batman - he had a suit which had muscles. A bird and a bat r 2 very different creatures. Calling the movie "Birdman" befuddled me because Birdman evokes memories of an old man in prison feeding birds as a mental escape, while in prison and Batman something else entirely.
To cut 2 the quick, it was foolish, and if u no nothing of heroism (think soldiers & the original Batman), Birdman neither recalls the efforts of true heros nor comic book heros.
