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.

Ending our month-long Arthouse of Horror series the first horror film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. Starring Jodie Foster as a young FBI trainee brought in by her superior (Scott Glenn) to gather information on a current serial killer through communicating with one of the most notorious killers in custody. Anthony Hopkins, along with Foster, would win an Oscar for his portrayal as the demented and dangerous cannibal Hannibal Lector. But does this film deserve Fava Beans and a nice Chianti or should it get the hose? Eric, Kent & Lobster investigate.
