I try not to use the words "America" or "American" when writing about the United States or its people. Ever since I saw Godard’s Notre Musique (or the one before it, Eloge de l’amour), the scene where someone says (en francais), "America," and someone else says, "Which America? North America, South America?" I have been unable to use these words without thinking.
