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.

During the 70s, the biggest name in comedy was Python, a troupe out of England whose slapstick insanity mixed with crude brilliance became an influence worldwide. After the breakout success of their first feature, they prepared for their most ambitious project ever; a comedy set in the Holy Land in the time of Jesus starring the child who was born one manger down from, now grown into the put-upon sad sack named Brian. With jokes that tackle religous zealotry, blind faith and the proper way to write "Romans Go Home", this film made enemies very quickly. But does Eric, Kent and Lobster join that crowd or do they look on the bright side of life?
