This week on End Credits, we’re being racked with guilt. For the review this week, we’re going to watch the new Netflix movie, The Guilty, and all the unexpected timely thoughts it promotes. Before that, we will have another pre-Guelph Film Fest interview with a filmmaker who’s trying to wrap her head around another ‘G’ word emotion, “grief.”
This Wednesday, November 3, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Tim Phillips will discuss:
INTERVIEW: Jennifer Abbot, director of The Magnitude of All Things. When filmmaker Jennifer Abbott’s sister passed away from cancer, she starting looking for an outlet for her grief, and her thoughts went back to growing up around Georgian Bay. The Magnitude of All Things chronicles Abbott’s struggles with personal and planetary loss, and it’s screening this week at the Guelph Film Festival, but she joins us here first to talk about the film and her journey.
REVIEW: The Guilty (2021). Jake Gyllenhaal’s had a lot of wacky adventures in L.A. as a writer (Nocturnal Animals), as a news videographer (Nightcrawler), and as a cop (End of Watch). Strung out LAPD cop Gyllenhaal returns in The Guilty, which is based on a Danish film of the same name, and follows Gyllenhaal as he awaits his fate for a police involved shooting while answering phones at the 911 call centre, and then he gets the emergency call that changes everything. So will you be guilty of having a good time watching The Guilty?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
