So…I know that these posts aren’t typical, but there’s one scene in Birdman (Or the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) that I think strikes a powerful chord with the modern-day film industry:
I LOVE this movie, but as a more “artsy” (I hate that term) director, I’m always worried when I hear that the only stuff that studios believe will be successful are franchises, fairy tales, and superheroes, Michael Bay-hem stuff. It’s not that I actually HATE action blockbuster movies (obviously, I wouldn’t be a Rocket Jump fan!), but I wouldn’t be happy if that was the only stuff that made money.
What do you guys think?
