“Birdman”: The Unexpected Virtue of Psychosis

It is described as such in reviews and, as if to codify the point, it was nominated for a Golden Globe award for comedy.

I did not experience it as a comedy at all. I found myself in rapt attention in a continual state of tension, anxiety, anticipation, even worry over what would happen next. When it was over, I texted that I had just seen it and didn’t know if I loved it or hated it. Read the rest of this post »
