    Great review here Jeff. I honestly think Birdman might be Lubezki’s finest hour. A tough call, as I consider The Tree of Life one of the best looking films of all time. But this movie was so damn fluid and perfect. Ah, I just loved it. And I loved how you called out that phrase in Riggan’s mirror. The whole movie comes down to that, really.

      Yeah man, I had a ball trying to imagine how this was all pulled off. Lubezki I believe now can be considered a living legend with just his work in Tree of Life, Children of Men and Gravity. Here he somehow outdoes himself with the one shot look, mirroring the one take in a stage play that performers all go through. Renewed my faith in Inarritu and hopefully will give a comeback to Keaton in the near future. We agree on this Inarritu at least, thanks for stopping by!
