‘Big Birdman’ starring Caroll Spinney and Big Bird

Sesame Street has something playful for the adults young at heart — a wonderful parody:

😀 Caroll Spinney, a veteran puppeteer, who plays an avian icon, battles his ego and attempts to find his way back to a certain furry and friendly street. This is ‘Big Birdman.’

Birdman is an incredibly well executed, highly acclaimed Oscar-winning film from Alejandro González Iñárritu, and I recommend you all see it at some point:

BIRDMAN or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance is a black comedy that tells the story of an actor (Michael Keaton) — famous for portraying an iconic superhero — as he struggles to mount a Broadway play. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career, and himself.

And for those of you who have seen it (aka, spoiler alert for those who haven’t); a dedicated film buff about a month ago, decided to draw a map based off of where the characters in the movie moved from location to location, and from his amateur stint in cartography, actually discovered something rather interesting:

“Swerving and halucinating, this megalomanic backstage comedy runs us along all the perverted, hysterical stations of theatre life”, Filmkrant-critic Ronald Rovers wrote about Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Oscar-winner Birdman.
