Is it art imitating life? Or life imitating art? When it comes to Alejandro González Iñárritu’s brilliant “Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)” it really doesn’t matter. What matters is how fascinating his film is to watch.
“Birdman” tells the story of Riggan, a once world-famous film actor whose career is totally in the trash when we meet him. Masterfully brought to life by Michael Keaton, Riggan’s claim to fame was as the Birdman, an action hero whose movie appearances raked in millions. But once Riggan walked away from that film franchise (and money train), his career never really recovered and his fame slipped. Now he’s used his own cash to mount a show on Broadway, in the hopes of becoming a respected star once again.

Most people who know me know that cooking is not my strong suit. It's probably the reason I love dining out so much, especially at places (think the French Laundry in Yountville, CA) who serve complicated dishes that there is no way I would ever even consider tackling. One look at Thomas Keller's "The French Laundry Cookbook" was enough to send me running – most of those dishes are incredibly complicated and take hours and hours to prepare!
