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 1981, at the hight of a new historical drama boom, Warner Brothers released a Cannes Film Festival darling, Chariots of Fire, which told the story of two sprinters who competed at the 1924 Olympics despite the religious hurdles that stood in their way. But does the film deserve gold or does it stumble out of the blocks? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster get laced up for this Academy Award Winner.
