This week on End Credits, the movie theatres are re-open, but we’re still physically distant. All this concern about being locked down and contracting a potentially deadly virus is good grist for the mill artistically speaking and we might see that in this week’s review, She Dies Tomorrow. Before that though, we’ll have the news!
This Wednesday, September 9, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Tim Phillips will discuss:
Back to Normal-ish(?) There was once high expectations that we would be back to so-called normal by now. Nope. Still, as you’ll see in this week’s news, we have box office numbers for the first time in months, and some details about the partially virtual Toronto International Film Festival. But if you think the pandemic is over, we’re here to tell you that Batman now has COVID-19.
REVIEW: She Dies Tomorrow (2020). What if you knew with absolute metaphysical certainty that you were going to die tomorrow? Writer/director Amy Seimetz plays with that idea in her new independent movie that is being marketed as a horror-comedy, but is not especially scary or funny. You can’t easily peg She Dies Tomorrow in any kind of genre, which makes it something rather unique, but it is a rewarding experience just the same, or is just a timely bit of experimental cinema?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
