Critic Reviews of "Birdman of Alcatraz"CinePassionMay 07, 2011
An exhaustive abstraction of the John Frankenheimer social outcastEmanuelLevy.ComJanuary 08, 2011
Frankenheimer's compelling, if slightly fictionalized biopic of Robert Stroud is extremely wel acted by Burt Lancaster and the rest of the cast, including Thelma Ritter and Telly Savalas.Film ThreatJuly 16, 2007
This preachy bio pic is a hokey take on the birdman with Lancaster being misused on every occasion.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsFebruary 12, 2007
Prison biopic that's more interested in its liberal message about prison reform working for redemption than in anything else.Nick's Flick PicksAugust 09, 2006
Even with its limping screenplay and general drift toward competence rather than excellence, Birdman does pull us well enough into its fistful of compelling characters.Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)February 12, 2004
Absorbing biopic.Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)October 05, 2002
Lancaster is wonderful; a tribute to the human spirit.Apollo GuideJune 18, 2001
Lancaster's brilliant performance anchors Frankenheimer's fine film, a liberal-minded, optimistic celebration of the power of redemption.
