→ An Argument for Likable Movies

Ann Hornaday writing for the Washington Post:

But recently, I’ve begun to question whether “middlebrow” always deserves to be a pejorative. There are plenty of movies that, while not aspiring to high art or slumming their way to the lowest common denominator, qualify as middlebrow — and also happen to be skillfully made, generously humanistic and genuinely entertaining.

These are exactly the kind of movies I want to see.
