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

Paul and Erin examine two films about men descending into savagery in the Australian outback. First: WAKE IN FRIGHT, the recently rediscovered 1971 Aussie cinematic landmark about a schoolteacher whose overnight stay in a redneck mining town stretches into an extended spree of drinking, debauchery, and kangaroo hunting; then, MAD MAX, George Miller's 1979 action classic, set in the lawless, fuel-starved near-future, about a highway patrolman who becomes the target of a vengeful motorcycle gang. The Yabba or The Toecutter: which will prevail?
