This week on End Credits, we’re going to take it easy. It’s the first day of fall, and after the hustle and bustle of summer we can use something low key. The movie we’re reviewing for this episode is so low key that you might not have noticed that it was even being released. We’re talking about Confess, Fletch and some of the most exciting movies from *that* festival.
This Wednesday, September 21, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Peter Salmon will discuss:
TIFF Competition. The Toronto International Film Festival has wrapped for another year, and the winner of this year’s audience choice prize was a first time TIFF filmmaker called Steven Spielberg, who’s new film, The Fabelmans, was the toast of the festival. Does that make us want to see it more? Maybe. Before the review, we’re going to talk about the movies we’re excited about coming out of TIFF, from a doc about a robot to a cancelled movie about a clown.
REVIEW: Confess, Fletch (2022). Gregory McDonald’s series of books about a misanthropic former reporter constantly stumbling into mystery was the subject of one successful movie starring Chevy Chase and one unsuccessful sequel. Now it’s Jon Hamm’s turn to slip into Fletch’s reluctantly worn shoes as he embarks on a seedy trip into the art world to find stolen paintings, a missing tycoon, and the murderer of a young woman found in his Boston rental. Did we mention that Fletch is also a suspect? How’s Fletch going to get out of this one, and do we care?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
