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 1969, as the Summer of Love was in full swing, so was Swingin' London full of posh trends, which included a vibrant hip film scene with a new generation of British actors filling the cinemas. One of those new faces were Michael Caine and The Italian Job was to be his star vehicle into Hollywood. Despite being a box office failure, it was a cult favorite in part due to its unique cast and pithy dialogue. But did it deserve such cult status or should it have been stranded in the 60s? MovieDude Eric, Kent and Chris team up to blow the bloody doors off this caper.
