@slightlyflightyone I think in its simplest form, it kind of stands in opposition to "blockbuster cinema" or "mainstream cinema," which is to say cheaper, character-driven, less beholden to popular forms, more elliptical

@derek I described it as “film that’s prentious and makes no money”.

Sounds like we hit similar notes?

@derek For context, the reason it came up was because someone asked me my favorite kinds of movies.

“Easily arthouse cinema”


@slightlyflightyone That covers a hell of a lot of ground, could be anything from Eraserhead to Moonlight
