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 1999, it seemed that a new revolutionary film was coming out. Some were successfull blockbusters such as The Matrix, others weren't nearly as accepted upon arrival like Fight Club. But visionary music video director Spike Jonze made his feature film debut with sitcom writer Charlie Kaufman's strange, twisted dark comedy with the peculiar name Being John Malkovich about a slacker puppeteer who finds a portal into the conscience of the somewhat familiar actor whose name is on the title. But does the film truly revolutionize or is it a world that no man should see? Eric, Kent & Lobster travel to the 7 & 1/2 floor to find out.
