What we have is hypothetical here. True, reality says the odss are better on
the part that crosscultural interpretations are a bad idea, but what if a certain
balance could be reached? I'd love to see that happen. I've always admired
the best of american film and writing techniques because of a certain bluntness
and finesse that they combine in their writing/filming, just as much as I admire
the subtlety of Oriental writing techniques.
