I was only using "low" genres to show that it's not all "high" art, and that those cultures, with help, can often produce extremely popular (and profitable) films. I also wanted to show that favorite popular U.S. directors and tropes wouldn't exist without them.

I assume you know the endless examples of "high" art film and I don't need to list people like Ozu and Szabo.

You can never have cultural separation unless you police along the lines of N. Korea or former Afghanistan. I don't think anyone is arguing for that, at least not anyone I've read in these threads. I don't think Momus is arguing for cultural seperation at all, only for more variety and ways to make that happen.

Without mixing, again, most "high" art would not exist. No Kurosawa, French New Wave, Fassbinder etc.

I'm arguing that subsidizing small markets (esp. those that are against monolithic multinationals) is good for all.
