Indie is short for independent and means that the movie was produced without the backing of a major studio. Indie films are sometimes refered to as art house films because they didn’t get shown at big chain theaters only at small theaters
I’m very much obsessed with indie films. I’ve been watching tons of them lately and I decided I should share them with you guys! These are basically most of the movies that I would label as indie films (though some of them are quite popular). So turn the lights off and maybe grab some popcorn and enjoy the films c: (bolded are absolute recommends). If you’re having trouble with any of the links, please let me know!
If you stan for awesome black females (aka all black females) in romantic comedies where they aren’t a trope or a stereotype please support the Sundance indie People, Places, Things starring Flight of The Conchords Jemaine Clement and co-starring the beautiful and talented Regina Hall and Jessica Williams (who basically steals the movie).
I love a good indie movie, and right now one of my favorite performers has to be Zoë Kravitz. She’s had some pretty good roles in her filmography, and going through a few of them(all available on Netflix), I can’t help but to notice a motif of addiction and substance abuse particularly in adolescents.
Watching a few of these films in order shows a pretty uncanny storyline. Starting from naiveté to recovering addict. Try watching them in order!
You know the wonderful thing about you, Richard? It’s that death isn’t just a destination for you. It’s a part of you. It lives in you. It’s woven into the fabric of your soul. There’s nothing you can do but embrace the fact that every day ought to be your last.
It’s tough finding an indie coming of age film that’s not banal, but there are a few rare gems out there. Although I’m a sucker for classics, I will always have a weak spot for sitting down with a cup of tea and losing myself to a coming of age film, dedicated to the awkwardness, hardship, and beauty of pure youth.
