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.

1994 was the year we saw the world through a simple man's eyes, learned what a Quarter Pounder with Cheese is called in France and that singing lions can stage Shakepearian tragedies. But the one film nobody saw coming that year was The Shawshank Redemption, a film that only a few short years later would be deemed one of the films of all time. Directed by Frank Darabount and based on a novella by Stephen King, this is the story of two convicts serving life sentences whose friendship gets them through the hardships of life on the inside. But does the film deserve the acclaim it got or does it deserve 2 months in the Hole? Eric, Kent & Lobster take a cell to find out.
