Highbrow Lowbrow

June 19, 2022

Highbrow Lowbrow is a new podcast created by Dan Slattery and I. We took the basic idea from conversations we have at work. My taste in films is a little more highbrow, and Dan prefers genre films.

In each episode one of us recommends a film that might be termed “highbrow” and the other recommends a “lowbrow” film. We then have to defend it, knowing that it’s a film which the other person hates.

We realise that “highbrow” and “lowbrow” are completely subjective terms (how would you classify noir?) and in future episodes we are going to shake things up a bit. In the meantime, enjoy episode one. My Highbrow pick is Barry Lyndon directed by Stanley Kubrick and Dan valiantly defends The Expendables directed by Sylvester Stallone. You can listen here.

Highbrow Lowbrow will give you hours of entertainment
