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

Heather and Paul review NIGHTS OF CABIRIA, Federico Fellini's 1957 Italian neorealist classic starring Giulietta Masina as a streetwalker who retains her optimistic spirit even though life and men seem determined to disappoint her at every turn; and SWEET CHARITY, Bob Fosse's splashy 1969 musical remake of the same story, starring Shirley MacLaine as a lovelorn taxidancer in New York City. A malevolent hypnotist, or an evangelist played by Sammy Davis Jr.: which will prevail?

Plus: short takes on a pair of Les Blank documentaries, CLOUD ATLAS, season two of GAME OF THRONES, THE GREAT GATSBY, and DAMSELS IN DISTRESS.
