Encouraging "imagination" in kids now has everything to do with the new outrage culture we're all trapped in: only happy thoughts and stuff.
"A picture's beauty does not depend on the things portrayed in it..." Marcel Proust.
There might be flaws in BIRDMAN but it's the most audacious, interesting, self-conscious, entertaining, tragic and funniest movie of 2014.

Today: Gent Film Festival Press Screening of Closing Night Selection BIRDMAN: Best American movie of 2014. Restored my faith in the medium.
