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.

In 1984, director Milos Foreman brought a nearly all-American crew back to his hometown of Soviet-occupied Prague to film an adaptaion of the wildly successful Broadway play Amadeus. Telling the story of the envious Salieri (F. Murray Abraham) as he plots to kill the object of his obsession, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (Tom Hulce), the film dives deep into rich themes of obsession, mediocrity and the nature of producing art. But does the film deserve it's Best Picture Oscar or should it have been lost in time? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster find out.
