    Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)

    ★★★

    White guy realizes he lives in a society, but not as fun as other films with white guys realizing they live in a society.

    The camerawork is brilliant but it overshadows the lack of substantial anything that it’s capturing on film. Like the acting is great, and they yell sometimes which is cool, but where does it go?

    I don’t think I moved once while watching this. It’s really the fucking best. It’s the most enthralling action thriller I’ve probably ever seen.

    ★★★★

    This one really surprised me. Slow first act for sure, the writing’s a bit clunky at setting everything up, but the last two acts and the writing just ramp up in a way I wasn’t expecting.

    Paul Thomas Anderson is a good director man. 

    Philip Seymour Hoffman owns a top three scene in this movie too. What a guy, I miss him a lot.
