Culture Shock
In movies, plays, music, art, and literature, the Brazilian culture continues more alive than ever. Brazilians have never bought as many books as in recent years and there are a number of movies being made and released right now which deal with Brazilian historical facts and cultural values. New playwrights have been able to fill up theaters all over the country and new poets are finding out their own voice and a public to listen to them.
Rodolfo Espinoza
    Any English-speaking individual a little more distracted taken unaware to a Brazilian big city might never notice he left home. Several radio stations seem to ignore any other music but American hits and other less than successful tunes. On cable, people are served the diet Americans are used to, including CNN, HBO and MTV. In movie theaters more than 60 percent of films being shown are from Hollywood. (In the first week of January, for example, of 29 movies being shown in Rio, 18 were American — including Space Jam Daylight and 101 Dalmatians — 3 from England, 3 from France, 2 from Spain, 2 from Italy, 1 from Iran, from Brazil.) They have been translated into Portuguese, but among the 10 best-sellers list are books by Ken Follet, Sam Shepard, Morris West, Scott Adams, and James Redfield. Not to mention the McDonald's, Jacks in the Box and shops naming themselves with cute little English-sounding names and the Walt Disney characters spread all over.
