I think the thing I took away from that reflection is how easily we get our priorities reversed, where principles of aesthetic craft take priority over the actual results of that craft, as if "good" exists in a bubble of eternal principles as opposed to the proof being in the pudding of what people like. If someone can arise to the top of their profession by breaking every rule of aesthetic "good taste" (good composition, good writing, good directing, etc.), then to me that should provoke us to, at the very least, reconsider our standards for what counts as "good taste" rather than condemning the thing for being in bad taste.
Perhaps ‘good’ and ‘bad’ taste don’t exist. There is only ‘my’ taste and ‘your’ taste. :giggle:
