  • Birdman 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 26 Oct, 2014

    Powerhouse. That's the word I've settled on after days of thinking. Birdman is a powerhouse in showing off the abilities of everyone involved. I've given this four and a half stars and I'm not sure why it's not five. Maybe, upon second viewing I'll be convinced.

    Today, I embarked on a journey. A joint journey in which Gustav letterboxd.com/gustavr/ and I are very excited about. Over the next few weeks we will be going back and re-watching some of our all time favorite films. Today we began with the love of my life, Children of Men.

    When I was in the eighth grade, my love for films truly began. I was on my way to Florida on a family vacation and had rented some movies off…
