What are people's problems with Birdman's ending? It works with the fantasy nature of other parts of the movie and I like the ambiguity

Some people don't like ambiguity I suppose.

Boyhood definitely relied on it being an experience, and like a lot of movies it relies on you being able to make some connections from the characters' experiences with your own life. I am only a few years ahead of Mason and so a lot of it struck a chord with me in particular.

Also it's not fair to ask someone to propose a new ending to Birdman. We aren't Hollywood writers for a reason. You don't need to have an alternate ending in mind to just know that there's something wrong with the one that's there.
Why do you dislike it? Not a counter, just honestly curious on your perspective.

I can imagine not like Grand Budapest as much as I did, or compared to some of his other movies

but to say they all suck, you crazy

Birdman is proof anyone with money can turn a shit film into gold with advertising.
