No other form of art or entertainment today could be said to have cast as wide a net or have had a greater impact than American cinema. It dominates 60 percent of the world's film market. Distinguished film critics from around the world each present a recent U.S. film, discuss its influence on their countries, and showcase new films from their countries. Some films are featured at the Walter Reade Theater at Lincoln Center.
