Variety – The “Birdman” awards buzz grew louder Saturday night at the Telluride Film Fest, as a packed screening confirmed that the film has potential for across-the-board kudos attention.
Praise for the Fox Searchlight film has been quietly building for weeks, and there was such a demand for tickets to the first screening that hundreds were turned away from the 650-seat venue.
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu could be a multiple contender, for his work as director, co-writer and one of the producers. He and his team of artisans balance substance with a lot of technical razzle-dazzle that will put the film in contention in the craft/guild prizes. Michael Keaton is a best-actor front-runner.
The film will likely continue its momentum at the New York Film Festival. But not everyone will love the film; it’s radical and unorthodox, and some voters will be confused by its jangly eccentricity.
The October issue of Empire Magazine has a preview/review of both Magic in the Moonlight and Birdman and you can find scans up in our gallery.
Magic in the Moonlight opens in UK on September 19 (it’s out on US already), and Birdman will open only in January 2 in UK, but with a limited release on USA in October 17.
Birdman is opening today on Venice Festival and reviews are on fire already!
Venice has done it again. Last year, Gravity blasted the lid off the festival as the opener and today Birdman, a film that’s got a fair bit in common with that one, bowed to one of the best receptions I have ever experienced on the Lido. (It’s even trending at No. 4 on Italian Twitter.) Applause, laughter and strong emotion emanated from attendees in the refurbed Sala Darsena this morning during the first press screening. Making my way out afterwards, I heard “bellissimo” uttered at least a dozen times. (Deadline)
There are some wonderful in-jokes and a nicely judged selection of namechecks for the likes of George Clooney and Justin Bieber, but Birdman isn’t just an arthouse What Just Happened. If anything, it is surprisingly emotional; as we’ve come to expect from an Iñárritu film, Birdman is a man’s movie in a very delicate sense, dealing with relationship and family issues from a place of vulnerability.

In addition to being a virtuoso stunt in its own right, this single-shot illusion serves to address the critique that screen acting is somehow less demanding than stage acting, since there are no conventional editing tricks in place to shape the performances. The cast has no choice but to ante up, which everyone does in spades, and the film is built generously enough that everyone gets ample time to impress (although it should be noted that none of the background sexual intrigues amount to anything). (Variety)
Stone is maybe the best she’s ever been, which is saying something, delivering a snarling monologue at one point that is basically a manifesto for the modern millennial, and then tempering it with a tiny beat at the end that kind of deserves an Oscar by itself. (The Playlist)
