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

Paul and Heather experience strong feelings of liberty, equality, and fraternity as they review the new Criterion edition of Krzysztof Kieslowski's early-’90s arthouse landmark THE THREE COLORS TRILOGY: BLUE, starring Juliette Binoche; WHITE, starring Julie Delpy; and RED, starring Irène Jacob. Plus: mini-reviews of Seijun Suzuki's whacked-out yakuza flick YOUTH OF THE BEAST and the third season of IN TREATMENT, even more DOWNTON ABBEY talk, and the usual roundup of the week's other most noteworthy new DVDs and Blu-Rays.
