This week on End Credits, it’s time to eat! Although our show plays at mid-afternoon every Wednesday, perhaps you might enjoy a small snack while you listen because, this week, we’re going to make you hungry. Along with our review, which is about The Menu now streaming on Disney+, we will talk about some food-based movies to tease the palette.
This Wednesday, January 25, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Candice Lepage will discuss:
More Eats. Movies centred around eating, or the business of eating, have provided so much rich fodder for numerous movies over the years that’s it’s almost its own subgenre. From a luscious drama about the transformative power of chocolate to the brutal history of betrayal behind the most famous fast food chain on Earth, we will look at some of our favourite movies about food and eating, and yes, there will be cannibalism!
REVIEW: The Menu (2022). Finally, a movie for foodies, about foodies! A dozen people head out to an exclusive restaurant on a secluded island for a meal they will never forget… Their last! That’s what The Menu is about in a nutshell, but there are a lot of intricacies to this overlooked movie from last fall which features Ralph Fiennes as the famously eccentric chef and Anya Taylor-Joy as the mysterious dinner guest who throws a wrench into the chef’s thoroughly planned out meal. The result? A meal of a movie with nourishing themes and acting!
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
