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

Paul and Erin review two films about high-concept serial killers: David Fincher's rain-drenched 1995 thriller SEVEN, and the campy 1971 Vincent Price cult classic THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES. A head in a box, or a head in a constricting frog mask: which will prevail?

Plus: our quick takes on ANT-MAN, BAAHUBALI, TRAINWRECK, LOST SOUL: THE DOOMED JOURNEY OF RICHARD STANLEY'S "THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU," and THE DEATH OF "SUPERMAN LIVES": WHAT HAPPENED?

Paul and Erin ogle three movies whose main characters are blue-collar dreamers by day and exotic dancers by night: Steven Soderbergh's 2012 male-stripper drama MAGIC MIKE (and its sequel MAGIC MIKE XXL), and Adrian Lyne's glossy 1983 megahit FLASHDANCE. Male abs or female buttocks: which will prevail?

Plus: our quick takes on SUITE FRANÇAISE, SELF/LESS, OM SHANTI OM, and BALLET 422.

Erin and Paul review two films from the flamboyant visual imagination of director Tarsem Singh: the 2006 fable THE FALL, and the 2000 psychological serial-killer thriller THE CELL. A swimming elephant, or a sliced-up horse: which will prevail? Plus: our quick takes on THE VALLEY BELOW, JONATHAN STRANGE & MR. NORRELL, ADVANTAGEOUS, WHAT HAPPENED, MISS SIMONE?, and MAGICIAN: THE ASTONISHING LIFE AND WORK OF ORSON WELLES.
