Review Of The Movie 'The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance'
The movie Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) has one of the plots of all time. The movie shows beautiful realism and symbolism. Thompson has the spirit of Birdman follow him wherever he goes. “Birdman” is constantly insulting Thompson and saying that he should quit this “talky, depressing, philosophical b******t ” and go back to Hollywood and become “Birdman” where he could become famous once again and make millions of dollars. Obviously “Birdman” isn’t physically there, it is Thompson’s conscious, personified through this character he played in the past, regretting this decision to do this play and wanting to go back to Hollywood and become “Birdman” once again. Towards the end of movie Thompson characters in the play is supposed to kill himself with a fake gun. Thompson is depressed and, for the most part, can’t take life anymore. Thompson brings an actual gun on stage and shoots himself in the side of the head as part of the grand finale.
