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 1984, writer-director Michael Radford was given the greenlight to construct his ultimate vision of prominent 1948 novel by George Orwell about a dystopian future where a midlevel bureaucrat falls in love in the ultimate defiance against the repressive regime. Starring John Hurt and Richard Burton in his final performance, shot by legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins and scored by 80s pop group The Eurythmics, does this version deserve to be watched or should it be sent to Room 101?
