REVIEW – The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance (or Our Birdman Review)

REVIEW_GRAPHIC

Plus John Wick, The Heart Machine and CITIZENFOUR

This week, Patches and David wander in one continuous take around the animated, existentially empowered Birdman. The new comedy from 21 Grams and Biutiful director Alejandro González Iñárritu has a lot on its mind — or does it? — and the Fighting in the War Room guys suit up in this action packed sequel to last week’s episode. Coming next week: Birdman 4 (we’re skipping 3). It’s that and mentions on John Wick, The Heart Machine, and Citizenfour on this week’s review episode.
