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

Paul and Heather go searching for cheap thrills in Masahiro Shinoda's stylish, nihilistic 1964 yakuza neo-noir PALE FLOWER, and listen raptly to Fran Lebowitz holding court in Martin Scorsese's made-for-TV documentary PUBLIC SPEAKING.
