I am culturally, though not politically, an extreme elitist: I think the whole of so called "popular culture"—with one single exception—is garbage.

I think it is only worth reading Homer, Cervantes, Whitman, Shakespeare, Leopardi, and a few others; it is only worth listening to Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Haydn, Schubert, and a few others; it is only worth watching Kurosawa, and a few others.

The one exception is Star Wars (1977).
