Season 8 Episode 5 Birdman, Force Majeure, Togetherness, Fortitude

You can tell its oscar season on everyon’e favourite TV and Film Bicycle as we are making a veritable pelaton of Academy hopefuls; this week former batman Michael Keaton plays former Birdman Riggan Thomson in a delightful kaleidoscope of art imitating life. Disclaimer: The Bicycle crew may or may not have found this delightful, best bet is to listen to the episode and find out! No less auspicious for its nomination in the Best International Film category despite Mark’s protestations to the contrary is Force Majeure, though we disagree on its pronunciation we can all agree its a film in a foreign language. Also under the knife this week is HBO’s Togetherness and an unlikely whodunnit from Syfy in Fortitude.
