A gravelly-voiced former Hollywood leading man attempts to make himself relevant again. After a humorous series of events - throughout which he chafes against his portrayal in the American media and savagely mistreats his few friends - he confronts his own ego and rediscovers what it means to be happy in life.
Bojack Horseman is a very good show.
Birdman is not a very good movie.
Fun fact: the version playing on my international flight doubles down even further on censoring for children; pretty funny given the self-censoring of the ordinary cut. "Bitch" becomes "freak", Drax is cut off before "whore" escapes his mouth and Serafinowicz not only loses his death scene but remarks "what a bunch of *CRIMINALS*" in the line-up sequence. May he live to point out the obvious another day!
Not sure that I jibe with its pacing all the way through, but it's great so often that I am more than willing to rewatch and see if that changes. At any rate it looks gorgeous, the soundtrack is tops and "Doc" Sportello is a better slacker-hero than even The Dude. It's a bloody good time.
