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 2000, Taiwanese director Ang Lee returned to China after making a name in American Independant cinema to direct his most ambitious film yet, the adaptation of a popular Chinese book series. Set in a feudal China where warriors can virtually fly and a mysterious green sword holds uncanny power, a saga between a retiring master, his longtime companion and a mysterious young upstart unfolds with both quiet meditation and stunning fight sequences. But does this critical and audience darling pack a mean punch or does it dangle from the trees? Eric, Kent and Lobster are here to investigate.
