This week on End Credits, we’re all about the movies. Of course, we’re all about the movies every week, but after taking several weeks to talk to some filmmakers, we’re going spend our extra time on this episode packing in as much movie talk as possible, and then, for our super-long review this week, we will travel to a fake French town for the equally made up French Dispatch.
This Wednesday, November 17, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Peter Salmon will discuss:
What We’ve Been Missing. For the last few weeks, we’ve been covering the Guelph Film Festival, and since we can only review one movie per week, it’s really put us behind on the non-stop new releases in theatres and on streaming.

REVIEW: The French Dispatch (2021). In another forced delay because of the pandemic, the latest Wes Anderson movie has finally been revealed.

The French Dispatch is a loving salute to the salad days of The New Yorker and when being a journalist was an exotic and influential job, but is Anderson’s latest film all that, or just more of the same?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
