Battle of the Brows: The preconceptions and allowances given to high and low brow culture on film

An analysis in what the benefits and drawbacks are from the label of high or low brow films. For example, lowbrow film is given low exceptions over depth and large box offices but is often pigeon-held as lacking depth by more high-brow audiences. Conversely, highbrow film is often held as almost always having deep meaning but is often criticized for failing to communicate clearly to their audience.

  • Sometimes ambiguity of meaning is preferred in the high-brow community. It keeps the film alive with infinite interpretations. Similar to classic literature, from what I know. – DrTestani 7 years ago
