Instead of high-concept, I think the word you might be looking for is epic.

A high concept film is often thought of as a film with mass market appeal whose premise and plot can be summarized very briefly. The concept behind the film is so strong and clear (so high), it doesn't need a lot of words to express.




2001: A Space Odyssey is not high concept either. But it is an epic.
