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 1946, with World War II officially at an end, Hollywood was getting back to business as usual with filmmakers and actors alike coming out of their military service. For Frank Capra, this was the time to finally make a film he had in the works prior to the war. Enlisting Jimmy Stewart once again, he tells the story of George Bailey, a small town businessman whose impact on others would be examined on Christmas Eve. The result would be It's A Wonderful Life, a box office disappointment  that would eventually become a hallmark of the Holiday Season. But does the film deserve the blessings given to it or should we wish never existed? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster are on the case.
