    Daring and imaginative, 'Birdman' is a cinematic tour de force

    When I first read the thumbnail on this one washed-up Hollywood action hero seeks redemption by staging serious play, with most scenes transpiring backstage at a Broadway theater I thought, what a boring excuse for a bit of meta navel-gazing that will...
