    Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu, one of the most exciting and innovative directors of our time, has made a film that is unlike anything else. - Gunnar Rehlin

    10 / 10

    The perspectives are dizzying. Both for the brain and the eye. Thoughts that grab hold of each other, only to finally be swung out into a surrealistic scene where the bird-clad Birdman soars above the skyscrapers. - Maria Brander

    8.3 / 10

    Everything is at stake in this vicious industry satire, so exquisitely crafted as if in a single long take. A rich farce about art - and the difficult art of constantly failing. - Jan Söderqvist

    The actors seem to enjoy making fun of themselves and the industry, not least Michael Keaton in the lead role as a former superhero actor. - Mårten Blomkvist

    After last year's sea of disappointments, I was hesitant about whether Birdman, a film I had been looking forward to, would match the hype. But wow, it delivered with flying colors! - Eric Diedrichs

    8 / 10

    It's charming and entertaining, and the film is quite funny. You'll get some laughs, while at the same time, there are many layers and a palpable depth. - Daniel Hofverberg

    8 / 10

    We have previously seen the entertainment industry and life through the eyes of a small theater collective, and numerous industry-exposing films have soiled their own nests before, but here the soiling is done with unusually sharp precision. - Fredrik Sahlin

    Positiv, no rating

    Despite being about the theater and movie industry, "Birdman" is still universally applicable. Especially in a narcissistic time like ours, where we are all preoccupied with showing off borrowed feathers - Emma Engström

  • 10. Fredrik Fyhr
    Negative, no rating

    Everything in it is meaningless, deliberately pretentious, like one long clown art or perhaps, in the end, the ultimate hipster movie of our time.
