Oh, GENE|  Don't you know that ALL US citizens are inherently culturally
motivated?  That we're ALL ethnocentric, patriarchal, racist pigs? Don't
you know that the East is INHERENTLY better than the West?  That our own
culture (miserable crumb that it is) isn't really worth studying?
Even if you THINK you're not culturally motivated, you ARE|  And your
continued belief that film as a narrative art was developed mainly in
the West PROVES how racist/sexist/patriarchal/ethnocentric you ARE|

I find it disturbing that a professional like you doesn't agree with
me.  I'm afraid it doesn't bode well for your stage of enlightenment.
