all foreign food ARE missing something.
Your music analogy? How about someone who only likes American folk. Period. Who's to say they're "wrong?"
I'm just saying categorically to rule out other things is strange.
I'd also mention that seeing "tidbits" of the oeuvre of world cinema probably isn't a great way to base such an enormous decision?
But maybe I'm misreading you. Maybe you didn't mean that you only appreciate American film after tastes of foreign films?
Lastly, with all the amazing variety of foreign film, to say one doesn't care for any of it--- that's just bizarre. Sorry if I'm misunderstanding you.
As far as convincing others: where's the harm? I was introduced to foreign film by others that were enthusiastic. I'm very grateful to them and just passing it on.
Agrre, if you don't ever try say Korean food, one is "missing" that food, as in they have not had an opportunity to try it. That said, nothing wrong with someone making that decision.
I don't personally categorically rule out anything, but I don't go out of my way to try new things either, just not the adventurous type.
I don't consider it an enormous decision at all, either I watch something or I don't. If a movie looks interesting I'll try it, if not... pass.
I get your interest, passion, I'm just more passive about movies.
Hollywood sure has an appetite for foreign films
look at how many get remade with US marquee stars!
