lowculture is torn. On one hand, we really want to go and see the film of Chicago, as we've heard it's quite good. But, on the other hand, we're worried that Richard Gere's performance as Billy Flynn will not be able to match that of John 'Nick Cotton' Altman, who played the role in the touring production we saw at a provincial theatre last year, and that we can only leave the cinema disappointed.
If anyone has any strong opinions which might help us make a decision, do let us know.

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses.
We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
