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.

Just off his Oscar win for Annie Hall, writer/director Woody Allen decided to make a bold and controversial film about a frustrated television writer with a teenage girlfriend, a vindictive ex-wife and an insatiable crush on his best friend's mistress. Set in and around the most highly respected of New York's five buroughs, Woody Allen's Manhattan was as widely respected as his Oscar Winner, leading newcomer Muriel Hemmingway to be nominated for her first Academy Award. But does this film earn high regard or condemned like many a-New York walkups of yesteryear? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster find out.
