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

Erin and Paul review two films about old-timey jazz clubs and the gangsters who kept them in business. First: THE COTTON CLUB, Francis Ford Coppola's ambitious 1984 Prohibition-era crime drama set against the backdrop of the legendary Harlem nightclub; then, IDLEWILD, the overlooked 2006 musical starring OutKast's Andre 3000 and Big Boi as performers at a 1930s Georgia juke joint, Paula Patton as the clubs's gorgeous new singer, and Terrence Howard as the violent gangster who makes everyone's life miserable.

Plus: quick takes on A SINGLE MAN, THE FAMILY, WASTE LAND, and TWIXT.
