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

Paul and Heather review two films about flamboyant, high-living con men: in I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS, Jim Carrey uses his powers of deception to further his romance with a fellow prison inmate, while in CASINO JACK, lobbyist Jack Abramoff Kevin Spacey uses his Washington connections to line his pockets with millions of dollars' worth of kickbacks. Also: Heather offers her mini-review of Derek Jarman's WITTGENSTEIN, while Paul notes the critical reaction to Todd Haynes' HBO miniseries MILDRED PIERCE, and describes his unsuccessful attempts to give his girlfriend nightmares.
