We have come to the Best Picture winner of 2014 in our retrospective. “Birdman” led the Oscar nominations with a tying 9 nominations and also tied for the amount of wins, winning Best Picture, Best Director, Best Cinematography and Best Original Screenplay. How well does the film hold up after such a successful night at the Academy Awards? How have its themes aged? Do the performances still hold up? What do we think of Alejandro G. Inarritu’s storytelling and Emmanuel Lubezki’s cinematography. Join myself, Nicole Ackman, Josh Parham, Dan Bayer and Patreon guests Charles Bright & Jason Woods as we discuss all of this and more for two and a half hours. Also be sure to check out our other 2014 reviews of “Selma,” “Ida,” “Foxcatcher,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Wild,” “Inherent Vice,” “Whiplash,” “The Imitation Game,” “Nightcrawler,” “American Sniper,” “The Theory Of Everything,” “Interstellar” & “Boyhood.”
