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 2006, writer/director Rian Johnson filmed his first feature film Brick, an ambitious mix of noir storytelling in a modern day high school setting starring former child actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a hard boiled detective investigating the murder of a former girlfriend that leads him down a rabbit hole of vice and violence. The film garnered a cult following but never caught mainstream success. But does the film deserve the acclaim or should it be left in a drainage ditch? MovieDude Eric, Kent and Chris find out.
