@mood It was just kind of a fluke that that specific run caught on. By all accounts she's still at it, working actress, released an albums a few years back.

Between Ju-on, Kill Bill Vol 1, and Battle Royale, pretty sure Chiaki Kuriyama was an it girl for a very specific subsection of sullen turn-of-the-century video store dorks

@slightlyflightyone That's kind of the idea, yeah, but there are arthouse "hits," it's just a matter of scale. And a lot of them are pretentious too. Thoughtful, arty, there's a bunch of ways to describe them.

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

@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
