Title Is there something between you and me? Critics and their role as cultural mediators Summary The role of critics has been usually neglected in the Popular Culture field. In this article, we characterize them as cultural guides that mediate between High and Popular Culture, and between the entertainment industry and the public. Through different rhetorical strategies critics base their legitimacy on the knowledge of the artistic form while they try to make it accessible to the big audience. We analyze some texts of film criticism to study the forms in which this cultural mediation is performed. Keywords Criticism- Popular Culture- Rhetoric- Film
