Overtly magical, covertly heartbreaking, Birdman is about soaring: soaring of hope, soaring of delusion, soaring of despair and madness, soaring of a heart as a meteor that refuses to crash into the ground.


Film has dream, film has music. No form of art goes beyond ordinary consciousness as film does, straight to our emotions, deep into the twilight room of the soul. - Ingmar Bergman
