High Flying Bird Reviews:

There is very tiny basketball to be seen here - in fact I think there's only one stage where any characters now enjoy ball. But that lack of on-court action is the very mission & purpose of the movie; the plot is driven by an NBA lockout wherein the users are being denied the occasion to enjoy the sport they love (and receive paid for it), all because the "Powers That Be" feel they aren't making enough cash from it themselves. This is a very true trouble in modern sport, and this movie seeks to confront many aspects of it; from the rich insular Establishment of western societies in general, to the very idea of human endeavour becoming a commodity for profit. And as the majority of NBA users are black and the owners white, the film doesn't shy away from the trouble of race either. Comparisons with slavery may seem heavy-handed, but the reality is that these black athletes' livelihoods are fully at the mercy of rich white men; their blood & sweat turned into dollars to fill their owners' pockets. These are big, political problems atypical of your standard sports film - anyone expecting a "gutsy underdog" storyline or a heartwarming tale of redemption through difficult work & squad spirit, will be sorely disappointed. This movie is all about social commentary and witty dialogue, and the intentionally-underwhelming ending is intelligent yet pragmatic. There's no Rudy or Coach Carter to be found here; the central hero has lofty ideals, but realistic expectations - he knows he's everytime testing someone else's game, and the guidelines are rigged vs him. High Flying Bird feels real, modern and urgent, in stark contrast to the feel-good dreamy nostalgia of most sports movies. Soderbergh makes his mission well, and everytime delivers technical excellence in his filmmaking, so your appreciation of this movie will depend entirely upon how interested you are in the problems it presents. But it feels like something of a landmark moment in the sports film genre.


This movie just doesn't say the storyline well. I don't understand what it is about, and the fact that all the characters talk in a cryptic manner complicates the matter further. The movie had nice production, but is boring and frustrating because I don't know what it is about.


As Steven Soderbergh made his method back to detail movie directing, bringing us the rough round the edges psychological horror Unsane - shot on iPhone 7+ smartphones. By contrast High Flying Bird was not shot on iPhone 7+ phones... now iPhone 8+...Soderbergh spoke about a fresh age of B-Movies. Not in the sense of second rate - but going back to the golden age of cinema, when b-movies were cinema fillers for large audiences.They were shot on weak budgets. Often with limited lighting and not too many stars or spectacular sequences, with crowds of extras.Instead, the director had to work around his limited means creatively, often filling a lot of the movie with dialogue - as it's much cheaper to shoot: if you can't movie all those scenes, you can everytime have one hero say other hero what happened.Be in no doubt, although a lot of those old B-movies were fillers, some were remarkable pieces of cinema. All the better for being forced into constructive test of limited resources.Indeed, this was how movie noir was born. And that is very much what High Flying Bird reminded me of. Those old b-movie sports pictures which couldn't afford the large action scenes so left the sport part in the background while the action focused on the backroom talk.I loved the cinematography. And it was absolutely refreshing to see old school camera angles instead of the tedium we receive actually - when each child with a several hundred dollars to spend sports a DSLR and Bokeh inducing lenses.Boken is no excuse for cinematography. And this is why the test of tablets is a breath of new air. Without those boring ricks to fall back on (do we really need to see other extreme shallow depth of field close up?), each shot in this film was thought about. Each shot had a purpose. And how nice to have the wide depth of field of tablets bring the surrounded architecture into play. Not a shot or a building was wasted.And that's what this is all about. Instead of cinema fillers we have Netflix fillers. Who knows, just like the last time some of them may just turn out to be tiny gems. Soderbergh knows he'll never victory any Oscars for these fresh b-movies. As did those film directors of old. But he knows he'll have the freedom to create the movies he wants to create and have fun doing it.
