Trash, Art, And The Movies
The podcast that pits arthouse cinema against brainless entertainment—and then declares a victor.

Paul and Heather join Vincent Cassel on an epic international crime spree in the four-hour bankrobber biopic MESRINE; and we finish 2010 off by having dinner with Fatih Akin in SOUL KITCHEN. Plus: we discuss the Golden Globe nominations, Heather offers her mini-review of THE DOUBLE LIFE OF VÉRONIQUE, and we reveal our picks for the next two weeks' most notable new DVD releases. Yes, two weeks. Sorry... you're going to have to spend Christmas without us.


Paul and Heather get weepy with Rodrigo Garcia's ensemble drama MOTHER AND CHILD, and spend a year with the legendary standup comic and plastic surgery addict in the documentary JOAN RIVERS: A PIECE OF WORK. Plus: our reactions to the list of the highest-grossing films of 2010, Heather's mini-review of Spike Lee's SHE'S GOTTA HAVE IT, and our usual rundown of the week's most notable new DVD releases.
