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 1954, filmmaker Nicholas Ray was interested in getting to understand the new youth culture of the emerging Baby Boomer generation. In doing so, he enlisted the help of newfound talent James Dean along with child actor Natalie Wood and Sal Mineo to form a trio of teenagers from broken families that form one of their own in the light of a tragedy. The result was Rebel Without A Cause, the film that would be significant to a new generation of filmgoers and the biggest film of Dean's short career. But does it find honor and glory or does it fall off at cliff at full speed? MovieDude Eric, Kent, Lobster and Guest Ian from Primal Scenes check it out.
