So let me get this straight, Americans don’t like foreign films? That’s just craaaaaaazy talk!
“It’s difficult to get people to pay attention to foreign language films, even under the best circumstances,” Jim hoberman, a film critic for the Village Voice alt weekly told PRI’s The World. Many Americans look to Hollywood, and begin to view themselves as the center of the filmmaking universe. Getting Americans break out of that mindset, and to tune into foreign films, some with subtitles, can be a challenge.”
