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.

But the one that would claim the prize was the very popular and well-respected film about a covert rescue mission in the midst of the Iranian Hostage Crisis called Argo. Directed by often mocked actor turned acclaimed director Ben Affleck, Argo swept the critical praise and made a killing at the box office. But does the film deserve the love or should it need rescuing once more? Eric, Kent & Lobster are here to find out.
