Non-American movies (or TV shows) in the USA, and across the world.

Though I’m French, an overwhelming majority of the movies (and TV shows) I’ve watched are American, or, at least, from anglophone countries. So, I wondered… a few things!

Pell-mell: How are foreign movies seen in the US? And/Or in the English-speaking world? And/Or across the world?

Is there foreign movies (or TV show) – French ones, for instance – that are strongly rooted in the American culture, or in any other culture that differs from where the movie is originally from? And if so, why have those movies made such an impact?
Are there biases depending on a movie (or TV show) origin?

And, finally, to what extent platform like Netflix may or may not have changed this tendency and these biases?

  • I also think moving this to TV would be really fruitful with Money Heist and lots of Scandi dramas infiltrating the mainstream too. – Marcus Dean 2 months ago

  • I watch non American shows like Elite (Spanish teen series) and other Turkish and Arabic television series. One of my favorite Turkish series that streams on Netflix is called "Fi", which is a psychological thriller. – nsafwat 2 months ago

  • As you mentioned, it is essential to talk about the importance of Netflix. The company, unlike other streaming services, has built quite a strong reputation bringing, producing and distributing quality foreign series and movies to North American viewers.I think it is also fair to talk about the recent popularity of movies such as Parasite, Roma or I lost my body. – kpfong83 2 months ago
