Yeah, they've tried that with cinema now and then. Not much success, has it?
Imagine the video player.. With shuffles and nozzles for.. what? One hundred basic smells? Or could they fit the smells to the sensory organs exactly?
Far in the future, I hope.. What would your living room smell
after, let's say a Black Adder marathon?
And about time to reach market.. Successful european films, when someone wants to introduce it to the american public, they have to do a remake
of it. Make the whole film production over again. Put in some obligatory famous actors, explain things a bit more so everybody and his dog can get it ("you've never lost money by underestimating your public") and sometimes replace the ending with a happy crappy one.
(Excuse me, but while there's a lot of things great about america, I don't agree with everything. And I'm in a foul mood sometimes.)
That doesn't take a month or two, but more like a year.
One such film I can very much recommend, called "Elling" here, is about two guys who have just gotten out of asylum. One (Elling)has been hidden away in his mom's apartment for.. his first thirty years? He's extremely insecure and still can't live without some mother substitute or another.
The other, (Kjell Bjarne) grew up with an abusive dad, lets out his aggressions with banging his head in the wall, and is quite obsessed with anything sexual.
And they have to live on their in a town..
Very funny, in a good way.
I think it had its premiere a week or two ago.
