Now playing in theaters is one of the best films of 2014: Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman. Made to look like one long shot, Birdman stars Michael Keaton as an actor who once played an iconic superhero and now faces troubles with his ego and family as he prepares to mount a Broadway play in a bid to reclaim past glory. While some movies have incredible performances or a great script, Birdman is one of those rare films where everything across the board is memorable. It’s absolutely one of my favorite films of the year and it should be seen as soon as possible. Trust me, this is a special movie that you will want to see. The film also stars Edward Norton, Naomi Watts, Emma Stone, Zach Galifianakis, Andrea Riseborough, and Amy Ryan.
At the New York City press day I landed a video interview Naomi Watts and Andrea Riseborough. They talked about what it was like to work with Alejandro González Iñárritu and his amazing director of photography, Emmanuel Lubezki, their reaction to the finished film, and a lot more. Hit the jump to watch.
Naomi Watts and Andrea Riseborough:
- Reaction to finished film and the music.
- What was it like acting with such complicated cinematography?
