This week on End Credits, hold on your butts. No, seriously, because it’s going to be numb by the end of the three-and-a-half hour running timing of this week’s movie, The Irishman. We’ll talk about that epic mob drama, and we’ll wrap up the Best of the Decade series with a double dose!
This Wednesday, November 27, at 2 pm, Adam A. Donaldson will discuss:
The Best of the Decade, Part 4 and 5 of 5. We’re coming up on the end of the year, but we’re also coming up on the end of the decade, so what else are we supposed to do but make a list of our favourite films of the last 10 years? This week Adam will run down his Top 10 of all the films released between January 1, 2010 and right this very moment!
REVIEW: The Irishman (2019). At once the most expensive project ever undertaken by both Netflix and Martin Scorsese, The Irishman is a magnum opus for Scorsese, and it seems to be a capstone for a career that’s covered so many different mob stories. The gimmick this time is that we follow mob enforcer Frank Sheeran over five decades, all played by Robert DeNiro thanks to the wonders of de-aging technology. But is this everything Scorsese wanted it to be?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 2 pm.
