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

Paul and Heather review the wry Ed Helms comedy CEDAR RAPIDS, as well as the Criterion edition of Robert Aldrich's apocalyptic 1955 B-movie KISS ME DEADLY. Plus: Heather weighs in thoughtfully, if tardily, on THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING, as well as Slavoj Zizek's offbeat documentary THE PERVERT'S GUIDE TO CINEMA. But wait, there's more: a discussion of Woody Allen's latest, MIDNIGHT IN PARIS, a debate as to whether Criterion's DVD packaging is overrated, and a roundup of the week's other most notable new DVD and Blu-Ray releases.
