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 1960, director Billy Wilder released one of his most memorable comedies of his career. The Apartment, starring Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine about an ambitious employee who allows his boss to use his apartment to entertain his mistress, would not only capture the attention of critics and audiences alike, but win Best Picture, a feat not too common for comedies. But does this film deserve to have it's own seperate key or would audiences do better playing gin rummy instead?
