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 1997, playwright-turned-filmmaker Neil Labute along with a tiny budget and a handful of unknown actors headed to Fort Wayne, Indiana and filmed In the Company of Men, based on Labute's play. The story centered on two spurned upper management trainers played by Aaron Eckhart and Matt Malloy who decide to maliciously toy with a deaf typist played by Stacy Edwards garnered critical acclaim for its brutal and unflinching look at misogyny and corporate culture. But does the film deserve the attention or should it fall on deaf ears? MovieDude Eric and Lobster fly out in Business class (while Kent stays at home) to find out.
