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

This week, Paul and Heather review two movies that sound like fairytales, but aren't. First: ONCE UPON A TIME IN ANATOLIA, Nuri Bilge Ceylan's slow-motion police procedural about three carfuls of cops, lawyers, doctors, and criminals who spend a very long night in the Turkish countryside looking for a buried murder victim. Then, ONCE UPON A TIME IN MEXICO, Robert Rodriguez's 2003 Mexploitation epic starring Antonio Banderas as a gun-wielding mariachi who becomes the key player in a coup d'état against the Mexican president. Homicide cases or guitar cases: which will prevail?
