    Now I'll be the first to tell you I consider myself pretty bad at film analysis, especially for more high-concept stuff. Birdman falls directly into that category, and let me say it has been years since I've been so grotesquely interested by a film. Starring Michael Keaton as a washed-up actor, we follow the production of a play the week of its premier, including its previews and last-minute actor switches.

He's just a psychopath. That's what makes this movie scary.
