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

Heather and Paul crank up their speakers for two hyperstylized rock and roll fables. First: VELVET GOLDMINE, Todd Haynes' 1998 tribute to glam rock, starring Christian Bale as a reporter seeking the truth behind the mysterious disappearance of a flamboyant David Bowie-esque pop star; then, STREETS OF FIRE, Walter Hill's 1984 oddity starring Michael Paré as a drifter who returns home to the big city when his rock-star ex-girlfriend is kidnapped by Willem Dafoe and his rampaging biker gang. A magical brooch, or a sledgehammer fight: which will prevail?
