This week on End Credits, we’re going to Netflix and chill. Well, we’re going to Netflix anyway. The streamer has been through the maelstrom lately, so this week we will offer some Netflix appreciation by reviewing their latest underrated acquisition, the Australian crime thriller The Stronger. And speaking of Netflix’s hidden gems, we’ll find you some more.
This Wednesday, November 9, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Tim Phillips will discuss:
Unglut Gems. There’s a lot of stuff on Netflix. A lot of stuff. The model of Netflix is essentially to flood the zone with so much stuff that you never know what to pick, but what if someone told you where you can dig for gold? That’s the goal for the first part of this show. We will talk about six overlooked flicks now available on Netflix that you should see including a tale of love and loss in Africa to a tale of love and loss in Australia, but with zombies!
REVIEW: The Stranger (2022). In 2002, a young boy went missing in the northeastern part of Australia and 10 years later the case was still unsolved. The police decided to throw a Hail Mary pass by running an undercover op on their prime suspect in order to illicit a confession, and it was successful, but at what cost? A true-life crime story is dramatized into a two-hander with Joel Edgerton and Sean Harris where the deserts and forests of the Australian wilderness become a foreboding neo-noir setting. Is The Stranger worth digging through your queue for?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
