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).

But maybe this is just a huge coincidence, or the result of a deranged porn-obsessed set designer? Nope: Scorsese, being a huge film nerd, was intentionally paying tribute to Howard Hawks’ 1932 version of Scarface, where an X appeared every time a murder was about to be committed.
