I've noticed that! I like to watch foreign films. While I find a number of continental films dull for lack of tight plot and story I find others refreshingly interesting because they don't tell you what is going on like a tour guide in a foreign city. I find it easier to get lost in these films and enjoy them.
I had a Korean friend in high school who commented about how silly he thought that everything he bought in the US had directions on it.
