This week on End Credits, we’re kind of in a celebratory mood despite the pandemic. This week, we’re delivering our 150th episode, and we’re unofficially kicking off season four of the show. For this timely occasion, we have a timely movie, and it’s French-Canadian too. On this show, we’re going to review The Decline, and we’re also going to talk about what we’ve learned from the first 150 episodes of the show.
This Wednesday, June 10, at 2 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Candice Lepage will discuss:
150 Episodes. It’s been three years and a week since our little radio show began life on CFRU, so for the first part of our show this week, we’re going to recap those first 149 episodes and look at the trends we’ve followed in the news these last 36 months, from #MeToo, the streaming wars, and the great Hollywood era of extended universes!
REVIEW: The Decline (2020). A more timely piece of cinema there’s never been, this Canadian film produced directly for Netflix (a first!) finds a group of survivalists heading out to the Quebec countryside to learn how to plan, hunker down, and attack once society collapses. But can they survive each other? Chock full of ideas about community, dependency, group think, and individualism, The Decline definitely captures the zeitgeist, but is it any good?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 2 pm.
