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 1997, just after the massive success of his adaptation of Sense and Sensibility, director Ang Lee set off to make his follow-up American film about 2 well-off families in 1973 Connecticut who are trying to reconcile their family dysfunctions during Thanksgiving as the weather turns dangerous. With a star-studded cast, based on a novel by Rick Moody, The Ice Storm would be one of Lee's most critically beloved films while being one of the filmmaker's greatest box office flops. But does the film deserve a fresh perspective or does it deserve ridicule? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster exit the train to find out.
