The currently in theaters “Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)” would be a weird enough concept – Michael Keaton plays a former superhero movie star given one last chance to revive his most famous role, mirroring real life – without one of the most ambitious conceits in movie history: director Alejandro González Iñárritu filmed the whole thing in one take.
Or at least, the 119 minute movie which co-stars Emma Stone, Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton and more looks like it was filmed in one take due to some judicious camera cuts. Still, even with the faux-one-shot, Iñárritu still would film the long tracking shots in four minute chunks or more, something virtually unheard of in today’s quick-cut world.
And because of that? Emma Stone kept screwing up the movie. A lot.
