This week on End Credits, we’re searching for meaning. It’s a big, complicated world out there, and it’s sometimes hard to make sense the craziest in it, so why not let a little shell show us the way? Marcel the Shell With Shoes On will try and fill us with hope and charm this week, and along the way, we will also talk about some of our favourite flicks from the year so far.
This Wednesday, August 3, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Tim Phillips will discuss:
So Far So Good. The year 2022 is now more than half over, so we’ve got to ask the question: Have we seen anything good? When September arrives, so does the busy festival and awards season, so in the interest of not missing anything good in the first part of the year, we will open the show by looking back at some of our ’22 favourites; from an anthology by the maker of Drive My Car to another trip to Gotham City with a new caped crusader!
REVIEW: Marcel the Shell With Shoes On (2022). About 10 years ago, Dean Fleischer Camp made a viral video about a one-inch shell named Marcel just going about his life. Camp and his collaborator, then-wife Jenny Slate, decided to give Marcel the feature-length treatment, and seven years later we get Marcel the Shell With Shoes On. This charming and hilarious mockumentary about a shell’s search for his lost shell family has been getting positive reviews for its voice work, humour, and warm outlook on life, but how do we feel about it?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
