Watch: Inarritu’s ‘Birdman’ Is a Collage of Edits, Not Just One Take

Watch: Inarritu’s ‘Birdman’ Is a Collage of Edits, Not Just One Take

The kind souls at the YouTube channel The Film Theorists have served up a doozy with this piece on Alejandro González Iñárritu’s ‘Birdman," demonstrating not only that the film’s "single take" technique is actually the result of a myriad of takes, carefully spliced together and masked with the swerves of the camera–but also that this approach all started with Alfred Hitchcock’s 1948 film ‘Rope." Watch. Learn. Enjoy. Fly.

  1. What is with this guy’s narration style? Is the intention to completely piss off the watcher to the point of closing the window before the video ends? Because that was the outcome.
