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

Paul and Heather discover that the characters from Todd Solondz's 1998 black comedy HAPPINESS are just as miserable a dozen years later in LIFE DURING WARTIME, then learn that even good-looking young Montreal hipsters are not immune to the pain of unrequited love in Canadian filmmaking prodigy Xavier Dolan's HEARTBEATS. Plus: Heather contributes a mini-review of the computer-animated comedy RANGO, Paul performs a microscopic analysis of Joe Dante's 1987 sci-fi comedy INNERSPACE, and together they round up the week's other most notable new DVDs and Blu-Rays.
