    I think there’s an inevitable downward pressure on intelligence in film, simply because the economics of production mean that you need the largest possible audience. Stupid people won’t enjoy a smart film. Smart people can be persuaded to enjoy a stupid film.

    Couple that with institutional anti-intellectualism and most people won’t look for another solution because the one that falls out (“make stupid films”) agrees with their inclination.
