Arthouse Legends Podcast


Welcome to Arthouse Legends Podcast - Where High Art and Geek Culture Collide! The goal of this podcast is to take a look at critically acclaimed and well-received films and consider if these films truly deserve their revered status in the cultural zeitguest. Using our combined film knowledge, geeky obsessions and general fart jokes, we take a bite out of much-beloved films, sometimes in love, other times in scorn, but never out-of-bounds.

What they didn't expect was a nearly all-star cast headed by Al Pacino and Jack Lemmon willing to take drastic pay cuts to get in on the project, which immediately boosted the project to a theatrical release. But does the film close the deal or does it get third place?
