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 1950, hit filmmaker Billy Wilder took on Hollywood's dark side head-on when he created Sunset Blvd. The story about a hack screenwriter (William Holden) who becomes dangerously intertwined with a reclusive former silent movie star (Gloria Swanson) ripped open tensiltown's obsession with age, sex and power that became a huge success with critics and audiences alike. But does the film deserves its close-up or does it belong face-down in the pool? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster find out.
