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

Erin and Paul review two musicals about women accused of first-degree murder. First: DANCER IN THE DARK, Lars Von Trier's emotionally grueling 2000 Palme d'Or-winning drama starring Bjork as a fantasy-prone, nearly blind factory worker who sacrifices everything in order to provide a future for her young son; then, CHICAGO, Rob Marshall's brassy 2002 Oscar-winner starring Renee Zellweger and Catherine Zeta-Jones as a pair of homicidal 1920s entertainers who parlay their criminal notoriety into fame and celebrity with the assistance of a cynical lawyer. Selma or Velma: which will prevail?

Plus your modern-day BARBARELLA casting suggestions and our quick takes on THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU, 20,000 DAYS ON EARTH, FRANK, and IDA.
