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 1996, near the height of the independent cinema craze, Joel and Ethan Coen returned to their Midwestern roots with a crime tale so crazy, it could only be true (or was it). Fargo went on to be the highest critically regarded film of that year and was nominated for several awards, winning two for its screenplay and lead actress Frances McDormand. But does the film deserve the ransom money it got away with or should it have been put through the woodchipper? Eric, Kent & Lobster put on their best coats and find out.
