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.

Arthouse Legends is back in 2014, but we're traveling back to 1995 when a bunch of hip new European filmmakers made a pact to make "real" movies in a sea of "fake" blockbusters. What ensued was Dogme '95 and it's first sanctioned film was Thomas Vinterberg's family drama The Celebration. The film about dark secrets and lies lit up Cannes that year and was supposed to be the new trend in filmmaking. But is The Celebration still the belle of the ball or are its partying days way behind it?

Eric, Kent & Lobster are here to find out.
