I could not be more relieved and galvanized by the films I’ve seen been watching lately. Whiplash and Birdman were both incredibly immersing and soul-stirring movies. On a basic level, they perform the way film is supposed to, reflecting universal aspects of human spirit with such authenticity and intensity that you have no choice, but to feel connected to the characters. Their vulnerabilities, their idiosyncrasies, the way, ultimately, like us all, they just want to be loved.
