Default Art House Films

I'm slowly falling in love with Art House Films. I haven't seen as many as I would like to see, hopefully with this thread others can talk of their love for Art house and help educate others. Post favorite lists, reviews or anything else that comes to mind.

An Art Film is typically not made for profit, so it more than likely not made for the masses. It's also more artistic than your usual hollywood film.


The Holy Mountain (1973)- I wasn't to crazy about Alejandro Jodorowsky's El Topo, but on the other hand The Holy Mountain was so over the top craziness that I couldn't help but be interested in it. John Lennon, being a fan of El Topo, help finance The Holy Mountain. The Holy Mountain isn't just a Arthouse film, it's a experience that will open your mind.

Art house films aren't what they used to be.

Most of them these days are made with big studio money and studio stars.

I remember doing some looking into that Holy Mountain. I think someone drafted it once upon a time.

It did look mighty interesting. Looked like some downright warped. I didn't read that Lennon had a hand in it. It explains a lot from what I saw though.

I've been interested in seeing it since.

It depends on what you mean by 'arthouse'. Some people erroneously classify any foreign film as 'arthouse'. I tend to think that it's any movie that does not have a normal structure, and is more experimental. Un Chien Andalou for example..

No, I have not seen many that really peak my interest.

I've really wanted to watch The Holy Mountain for a long time now, but for some reason I haven't watched it yet. I need to get my shit together and watch it some day.

The Holy Mountain is excellent.

When I hear "art house" I think of Ingmar Bergman (check out Wild Strawberries and the Virgin Spring), Lars von Trier (Europa, Dogville), Jean-Luc Godard (Breathless), Fellini (especially La Dolce Vita and 8 1/2), Win Wendes (Wings of Desire, Paris, Texas), some Gus Van Sant films (Gerry, Elephant), and hundreds of others.

I've become a huge art film nerd in the last 4 years...

the films I've been dying to see most is The Cremaster Cycle made by Matthew Barney
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Cremaster_Cycle

Recently art house has been incorporated into mainstream... which is perfectly fine with me!

Big fan of Bergman. Never cared for The Seventh Seal, but loved Wild Strawberries.

Drive is one of these few arthouse hollywood films I have seen, really special.

Au Revoir Les Enfants Aka Goodbye, Children (1987)


Possibly one of the saddest films I have ever experienced. Based on a true story of director Louis Malle about a friendship of two young boys, one who is hiding from the nazi's in a boarding school in occupied France.

I won't watch the film very often, because it's just too much for me to take in.
