Hi there,
I'm interested in suggestions of films and videos that make an effort to occupy 
the "dialectical gap" between so-called lowbrow and highbrow culture; in 
particular, work that addresses both mainstream popular culture as well as more 
esoteric academic or artistic history. I'm not thinking so much of work that is 
situated firmly in one or the other camps and makes an allusion to the other, 
but rather work that makes a pretty concerted effort to split the difference. 
Cory Arcangel's  work would be a good contemporary example. I'm particularly 
interested in historical examples from the experimental film world and 
suggestions of specific pieces. Also, if there's writing on this topic floating 
around, lemme know!
