* HypeBacklash: Following it's Oscar win for Best Picture, there was a slew of criticism that the movie's victory was more politically-motivated due to it's numerous [[TakeThat Take Thats]] at the Superhero genre and the director's own quite negative remarks about the genre.

** On the subject of the MCU, Michael Keaton being courted for a role in ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'' makes his character's reluctance to return to superhero movies more ironic. Even better? The role he's being considered for is [[ActorAllusion the Vulture]]!

* CriticalDissonance: In fact, as of its win at the 2015 Oscars, ''Birdman'' was the 2nd lowest-grossing Best Picture winner of all time. The only one that grossed less was ''Film/TheHurtLocker''. (Don't let the "lowest" statistic bother you though - despite that the film has made five times its budget in profit, so it was absolutely a success as a film.)

* SciFiGhetto: While the film stands as an aversion considering it was a best picture winner, arguably some of it is believed to come from [[http://comicsalliance.com/birdman-director-says-superhero-movies-are-cultural-genocide/ Iñárritu's own distaste for superhero films.]] bleeding over to the film.

* DyingDream: One of the interpretations of the movie's ending. [[spoiler:There's another view that the whole movie is this. The flashbacks to dying jellyfish and the streaking meteor relate to Riggan's first suicide attempt back when his life was falling apart making the Birdman movies. The whole movie could be him on that beach fantasizing what it would be like to be that respected actor he had hoped of becoming.]]
