Justine says this:

‘they are talking about film and the interviewer asks if some particular films made by a female Russian filmmaker are accessible. Waddell replies ‘Absolutely the interesting thing about a classical film classic books a classic piece of music, when things kind of tiptoe towards being works of art they become enormously accessible. there is something about the truth of a film or a piece of music that makes it accessible to anyone and particularly now when there is so much stress and strain around relations with that part of the world it’s really really important to be accessible to art from the region.

So much here that is undefined. What is meant by ‘accessible’? does it mean ‘liked’? what is ‘a work of art’? what kind of process/hierarchy? is meant by ‘tiptoe towards’?
