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.

Richard Kelley's Donnie Darko sparked controversy from the moment it was released, dividing critics and film lovers alike with it's otherworldly look and subtext, it's fascination with the physics of time travel and it's iconic mascot Frank. Set in the late 80's, Jake Gyllenhaal's Donnie goes on a personal journey as he tries to understand surreal events going on around him. But is this film worthy of it's cult status or are we just not dedicated to Sparkle Motion? Eric, Kent & Lobster follow the signs.
