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 1988, Italian Art House Filmmaker Bernardo Bertolucci proposed a film with the Chinese government to tell the story of the last proclaimed emperor of The Forbidden Kingdom who started his reign at 2 and whose last days were spent as a peasant gardener. Winner of nine Academy Awards including Best Picture, but does this film deserve those awards or should it be sent to a life of obscurity?
