This discussion reminded me of the "dilemma" I had when I posted abt Foreign Film Fest recommendations, cos some of the films are actually "local" to some pple on this board.
In my country, American and Hong Kong films are very common, altho technically foreign, I still regard them as the usual films hence not "that" foreign. However films from Thailand, Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan, Iran, Australia, NZ, UK and the European countries are less frequently shown and most of the times only during film festivals (either the annual one or the idividual ones held by the embassies). So I consider all of the them "really" foreign.
So in that sense, I consider UK, Australian and NZ English films more foreign than American English films.
