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 1963, fresh off the success of Psycho, director Alfred Hitchcock followed up this unprecedented success with The Birds. Set in a small coastal California town, a San Francisco socialite tries to woo a handsome lawyer only to be hindered by the combined threat of his mother and the onslaught of murderous aviary creatures. But does this film deserve the classic status it received or should it be pecked to death? MovieDude Eric, Kent and Chris check in to find out.
