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.

This classic 1972 film starring Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway has been a critical darling that snagged a few awards in it's time. Directed by Roman Polanski from Robert Towne's script, this stylish noir set in post-war Los Angeles is riddled with layers and innuendo. Eric, Kent, and Jon peel back the layers and look at the dirty little secrets in the heart of the city and take a few potshots at the LAPD of yesteryear (well, maybe more than a few).

WARNING: This podcast is filled with spoilers throughout. There is also harsh language. Parental discretion is advised.

Show Notes: As mentioned on the show, we used Roger Ebert's Great Movies Review, which can be found here: http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20000206/REVIEWS08/2060301/1023
