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 2001, the Boston Globe's investigative reports team known as Spotlight broke one of the most disturbing and longest-running conspiracies of all time. In 2016, the film Spotlight won the Best Picture Academy Award despite only winning one other award that year. The film topped many critics lists while being slow to catch on with audiences. But does the film deserve the high acclaim or should it have been lost in the archives? Moviedude Eric, Kent & Lobster pull out their notepads and chase the story.
