“Riggan Thomson (Michael Keaton) used to be somebody. Specifically, he used to be Birdman, a once globally beloved superhero turned pathetic pop culture footnote 20 years after his relevance (and his fortune) has faded. He used to soar above the world, patrolling the skies on wings of justice, dispensing law and order to all evildoers who would threaten the sanctity of his concrete roost. But now, Thomson is washed up. When his name receives mention, it’s enunciated with notes of incredulity and pity. Thompson influenced an entire niche of blockbusters; now, decades later, the poor sap just isn’t important anymore.” – Via Paste Magazine
