Birdman Multi-Oscar-Winning Movie available on BBC iPlayer

Found 1st Feb
Just discovered this great movie starring Michael Keaton was available on iPlayer. I liked it! Thought I'd share as others might not know it's available like I didn't.

Powerful, multi-Oscar-winning drama about

a movie star who has turned his back on his success as superhero

Birdman to gamble all on adapting, directing and starring in a Raymond

Carver short story on Broadway. Haunted by self-doubt about his worth as

a real actor, he drives himself to breaking point. His efforts seem

doomed to failure until, on the eve of the preview performances and in a

near-miraculous piece of apparent good fortune, a celebrated actor

agrees to join the cast, generating enormous interest and guaranteeing a

full house. Using innovative

camerawork to evoke the claustrophobic world of backstage theatre, the

film interweaves the story of the production with the troubled and

intertwined lives of the actors themselves, delivering a multilayered

drama.

Weird but not bad film, though £147 annual subscription fee is hardly free.

I find these iPlayer deal are really taking the mick and need to go freezing....
Awful movie - gave up after 30 mins and I hate doing that!
Wouldn't waste your time this film was garbage
Complete garbage movie.

It’s a bit weird and really not for everyone

I can remember thinking near the end "I still don't really know what this is about". Was there some sort of moral to the story?

This and Cable Guy are the only films i have ever stopped watching.... awful...

Maybe I should give it another go..
But heat as it is a 'free' film
Quirky and obviously not everyones taste. Liked it. Hot
Quality film
£147 to view - not free. Cold for me.
One of the best films in the last 10 years
Drive is much better than this, and that's on BBC iPlayer too.
One of only 2 films I could not get to the end of, even though others have been dreadful too. Seemed to be the sort of film beloved by 'luvvies in the industry'

I thought it was about mental illness or dementia. Something like that.
Tried watching this when it was on late one night last week, very strange film.
My other half hated this and so we stopped watching. Looked promising though.
Checked the other films nominated for 2015 - all superb, especially Boyhood, which is a masterpiece.

Selma. American Sniper. Whiplash (amazing). The Imitation Game. The Theory of Everything. Grand Budapest Hotel. I'd rate all of these as 10/10. Boyhood and Whiplash 11/10. HMM?
