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

Paul and Heather bust out their Bibles and their semi-automatic weapons to review Kevin Smith's very un-Kevin-Smithy siege drama RED STATE, then take an eerie trip through the Japanese forest with the new Criterion edition of Kineta Shindo's eerie 1968 ghost story KURONEKO. Plus: Heather reports on the goings-on at International Independent Video Store Day and contributes a mini-review of John Carpenter's unfairly derided sci-fi satire ESCAPE FROM L.A., Paul talks about Christophe Honoré's unconventional Parisian musical LOVE SONGS, and we round up the week's other most notable new DVDs and Blu-Rays.
