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.

Dec 21, 2016

In 2015, Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos' unleashed his latest absurdist film The Lobster to the film festival circuit and was immediately hailed by the film community. The story about a lonely man desperately seeking a mate under the threat of being turned into an animal was praised as either disturbing dystopic vision or askew metaphor for the absurd social pressures in regards to partnering. But does the film succeed in it's goals or should it be turned into the one thing no one ever wishes to become? Join us as we bid farewell to our own crustacean co-host Jonolobster in the final episode of 2016.
