That's what Ronald Bergen of the Guardian UK's film blog asks in an interesting, maddening, theoretically-correct-but-bollocks-in-practice essay defending ivory tower elitism. And I say that as a working reviewer who knows from jidai-geki and Stan Brakhage but also understands that they have no bearing on "Wild Hogs" or the audience that goes to see it. The comments following the article are priceless.
