Is it grammatically correct to say that?
Context: This phrase comes from my review of movie little known despite great too. My intention with this was to make a metaphor of the movie's beauty and obscurity.

    I would prefer to write "It is as beautiful as it is obscure". Using the full form of the verb gives the phrase more impact.
