on being "sophisticated"  
Catching up on the NPR Monkey See blog, I came across this piece:

http://m.npr.org/story/161341698?url=/blogs/monkeysee/2012/09/18/161341698/the-sophistication-problem-james-bond-gene-kelly-and-the-limbs-we-live-on

Since I spend a lot of time irritably thinking things like "The comedies are second-class citizens!" I enjoyed this piece. I especially liked the emphasis on being open to a work of art and trying to take it on its own terms instead of dismissing it because it doesn't immediately match up with your ideas about what it should be.
