Before I get started,let me finish please.
On the screen,or in the mind of Riggan,Birdman is a wild exciting superhero. Riggan(Keaton)
As the play unfolds,Riggans begins to doubt himself in precarious ways,believing he has superpowers.
Does he have superpowers,or are we only led to believe it ?
Whatever you believe takes place,will have you dwelling over it for days to come.There is the true or dare
Your interpretation of this spectacular masterpiece is your own gift.
I of many, relish such delicious pieces of work.
Sam: True or dare?
Mike Shiner: True.
Sam: That’s boring.
Mike Shiner: True is always more interesting.
Riggan: Listen to me. I’m trying to do something important.
Sam: This is not important.
Riggan: It’s important to me! Alright? Maybe not to you, or your cynical friends whose only ambition is to go viral. But to me… To me… this is – God. This is my career, this is my chance to do some work that actually means something.
Sam: Means something to who? You had a career before the third comic book movie, before people began to forget who was inside the bird costume. You’re doing a play based on a book that was written 60 years ago, for a thousand rich old white people whose only real concern is gonna be where they go to have their cake and coffee when it’s over. And let’s face it, Dad, it’s not for the sake of art. It’s because you want to feel relevant again. Well, there’s a whole world out there where people fight to be relevant every day. And you act like it doesn’t even exist! Things are happening in a place that you willfully ignore, a place that has already forgotten you. I mean, who are you? You hate bloggers. You make fun of Twitter. You don’t even have a Facebook page. You’re the one who doesn’t exist. You’re doing this because you’re scared to death, like the rest of us, that you don’t matter. And you know what? You’re right. You don’t. It’s not important. You’re not important. Get used to it.
