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 1965, Indonesia was the stage for a violent coup that would give power to gangsters and paramilitary groups with the goal to find and slaughter communists and their sympathizers. In 2003, director Joshua Oppenheimer found several of these individuals and offered them a chance to reinact their brutality on film in any way they want. The result would be The Act of Killing, a documentary that blurs the line between fact and fiction. But does the film earn the acclaim? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster investigate.
