This week on End Credits, we’re going to do crimes. Well, *we* aren’t the ones who are going to be doing those crimes, but we will be enjoying them in a voyeuristic sense with this week’s review, which is the Netflix crime drama The White Tiger. Crime is a regular staple of summer movies, and speaking of which, we will once again hop in the wayback machine to a summer from the past.
This Wednesday, July 7, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Tim Phillips will discuss:
Summer Lovin’ Part 9: 1992. It was nearly 30 years ago, when the movies from 1992 hit the big screen, and it was a summer with some choice picks. The Alien series briefly ended, a caveman learned to ride a skateboard, Van Damme fought Lundgren, and Tom Hanks led an all-female team of baseball players. There was also a Batman movies complete with an evil circus, and the most disturbing version of the Penguin even concocted. We’ll look at all the oddities.
REVIEW: The White Tiger (2021). It’s a well known story: a young man from an underprivileged background wants something better, and he’s willing to do anything to make it happen. Based on a novel of the same name, The White Tiger follows Balram, as he discovers just how hard it is to escape India’s outdated caste system and the urban/rural divide. Servitude is supposed to be second nature to Balram, but what happens when a chauffeur from the country starts to embrace his inner white tiger and chase something bigger for himself? Let’s find out!
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
