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 the late 60's, the western was being replaced as a tentpole of film and television. But before it did, Italian director Sergio Leone created his master opus in the third and final film of his Man with No Name trilogy with star Clint Eastwood. For this nearly three-hour epic, he brought in genre favorite Lee Van Cleef and Eli Wallach to be his labled trio in a twisted tale of greed, violence and death using the backdrop of the American Civil War. But is this film worth it's weight in stolen gold or is it of the fool's variety? Eric, Kent and Lobster don their panchos and head on out for a look.

This film's review comes from Eric himself, which was originally posted on Yahoo, but is now reposted on the Arthouse Legends Website.
