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 2002, Legendary Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki released his much anticipated Spirited Away in Japan and crushed the Japanese box office. The following year, he won the Academy Award for best animated feature. But does the film about a petulant young girl forced to save her parents from a cruel fate in a land filled with ancient spirits deserve to be considered to be one of if not the best animated film of all time? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster check in and see for themselves.
