- Hollywood Inc, Latin America - http://www.zonalatina.com/Zldata155.htm -
Site by Zona Latina on the popularity of Hollywood films in Latin America, and in addition a large variety of Latin American cinema links.“Looking at the WorldwideBoxOffice.com ranking of all-time movie box office receipts, it is clear that the global film market is dominated by products made in Hollywood, USA. Why are Hollywood products so popular? In his book, Scott Robert Olson proposes "the United States' competitive advantage in the creation and global distribution of popular taste is due to a unique mix of cultural conditions that are conducive to the creation of "transparent" texts --- narratives whose inherent polysemy encourage diverse populations to read them as though they are indigenous ... these narratives have meaning to so many different cultures because they allow viewers in those cultures to project their own values, archetypes, and tropes into the movie or television program, thus enabling the import to function as though it were an indigenous product.”
