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, director John Sayles released a film set in a Texas bordertown about a town sheriff trying to piece together a 30-year-old mystery that was literally unearthed during a time of change. The film would major milestones for stars Chris Cooper, Elizabeth Pena and a then-unknown Matthew McConaughey, who would go on to be much bigger stars, while the film itself got lost in time. But did the film deserve such a fate? MovieDude Eric, Kent, and Chris investigate.
