The article equates gross revenues as a measure of artistic
importance. That way Damien Hirst, one of the basest ?artists? in the world, is
considered the best (dirt poor, unrecognized Van Gogh anyone???). Does anyone
have ever seen his ?art?. It's utterly garbage , designed to shock but not too create any thoughts.
With that box office logic Titanic, ET and the Terminators
are works of art. The premise of the article is ?If it?s not known in the Midwest, it?s not good?. A very weak thesis indeed (but
hey, it?s Time).
