OK, then it's perhaps just harder to find the perls because there is more mud.
I think we can really learn from the Americans, blockbusters who are fun but also of decent or even great quality. It does not have to be either or.
That's how Shakespeare was succesful, that's what Reich-Ranicki always said, literature has got to be entertaining as well, and that's how timeless comedians like Loriot worked. You can have best of both worlds, entertainment which is smart and intelligent.
