The podcast that pits arthouse cinema against brainless entertainment—and then declares a victor.

Paul and Erin review two films about men whose entire lives are broadcast on national TV. Our art pick is Peter Weir's 1998 fable THE TRUMAN SHOW, starring Jim Carrey; and our trash pick is Ron Howard's 1999 comedy EdTV, starring Matthew McConnaughey. Plus: our quick takes on HOW TO BUILD A GIRL, SEBERG, EXTRA ORDINARY and THE TRIP TO GREECE.
