9 confusing movie endings explained

4. Birdman


Alejandro G. Inarritu’s film earned nine Academy Award nominations and won four. This strange film but gripping film had a simple storyline- about a washed-up actor trying to make a comeback on Broadway. In the final scene, Riggan Thomas’ daughter Sam enters Riggan’s hospital room to find his bed empty and an open window, to the sound of sirens coming from the street below. Though it seems as though Riggan has flown away, actually he successfully commits suicide. And Sam too ultimately dissociates from the real world, like her father had done, ignoring reality.
