For almost 2 hours, Birdman is captivating and Michael Keaton is mesmerizing. Then we watch the final few seconds and the entire movie implodes before our eyes. I have never seen a movie undo everything that came before it in such a short amount of time. Without spoilers, let’s just say it is inconsistent in our lead character’s actions, the observations of people around him, and adds a level of ambiguity that did not exist until that moment. An inexplicable final shot that, at least for me, ruined what had been a damn good movie. That being said, Keaton is magnificent.
