Actor Riggan Thomson is most famous for his movie role from over twenty years ago of the comic book superhero Birdman in the blockbuster movie of the same name and its two equally popular sequels. His association with the role took over his life, where Birdman is more renowned than "Riggan Thomson" the actor. Now past middle age, Riggan is trying to establish himself as a true artist by writing, directing, starring in and co-producing with his best friend Jake what is his Broadway debut, an adaptation of Raymond Carver's story, What We Talk About When We Talk About Love.

That it does not come up that ambition. First of all the main character is rather uncongenial, a truculent and arrogant man who hostilizes almost everybody often without reason. The story is an acceptable one but not particularly moving or dramatic: an actor who was famous for his role of a comic book character and that now ends his career by trying to put a play on a Broadway theatre stage. In doing this he meets a few obstacles such as a bad relationship with another actor and some unfavourable newspaper critiques. And personally he has got a conflict with his daughter. All this is rather ordinary in human terms. Besides that he seems to confuse himself with Birdman his former character that has made him famous, hearing and listening to his voice. This is a bit inadequate. The movie is nevertheless rather good in technical cinematographic terms.
