“I was interested in exploring the battles with the ego, the idea that no matter how successful you are, whether in money or recognition, it’s always an illusion. It’s temporary. When you are chasing the things you think you want and empower the people to validate you, when you finally get them, you soon find an impermanence in that joy,” said director Alejandro G. Iñárritu in a press release.
The films questions ideas of longevity, success, and relevance through the eyes of Riggan Thomson, a role which earned Michael Keaton accolades and critical acclaim.
Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Edward Norton, and Zach Galifianakis also star.
