End Credits Show Notes for Wednesday February 8, 2023 (Episode #283)

This week on End Credits, we’re once again on vacation vicariously. There have been a lot of movies about life-changing things happening at resorts while on vacation, and Aftersun is definitely one of them. In other news, we’re returning to another favoured trope on this show: movies that don’t exist yet, but we definitely want to see them when they are.

This Wednesday, February 8, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Tim Phillips will discuss:

Paint it Blacklist. Despite all the complaints that there’s nothing new under the sun, or in the movie theatre, screenwriters are still plugging away on original ideas, and many of them end up on the Blacklist, the list of the so-called best unproduced screenplays in Hollywood. This week, we’re going to check out this year’s Blacklist and talk about the scripts that we would like to see make it all the way to the finish line and into the cinema.

Aftersun (2022). You may not have heard of Aftersun until star Paul Mescal won an Oscar-nomination for Best Actor a couple of weeks now. Now part of the conversation, Aftersun is waiting on VOD to take you on a trip through time and memory. Based in part on writer and director Charlotte Wells’ own life, the movie follows a father and daughter on vacation at a Turkish resort where the surface level fun in the sun hides a lot of complicated issues underneath the surface. So is this another subtext-filled vacation we need to take?

End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
