'Movies Like Synedoche, New York': Most Pretentious Movies Ever

If your favorite movie is on this list of the most pretentious flicks ever, we beg your forgiveness; if all your favorite movies are on this list, you may have to take a look in the mirror.

Movies to Get Lucky With

If you are planning to Netflix and Chill, let one of these movies give you a subtle assist. They aren't bad enough to be a a joke, but at the same time they beg to be stopped 30 minutes in.

'Movies Like The Truman Show': Meta-Movie-Movies

Frankly odd films within films in the vein of 'The Truman Show', featuring characters peeping over the fourth wall. But if you're observing them observing the fourth wall...that means we're are in some kind of severely screwed up polygonal room!

Best Indie Comedies

Feeling "Dazed and Confused" about the fact that we don’t actually have “500 Days of Summer”? Let Ellen Page and Michael Cera turn that frown upside down.

Philip Seymour Hoffman Drama

While, unfortunately, we must hand accolades to his memory and not his person now, it became abundantly clear somewhere in his career that Philip Seymour Hoffman was one of the most talented dramatic actors of his generation. Producing great work right up to his tragic death in 2014, Hoffman could do everything from black comedy 'Happiness' to chilling character-study in 'The Master'. Gone, but not forgotten!

Frankly Depressing Movies

Movies that at their worst are bound to leave you feeling bleak and hopeless, but at their best capture the languorous, bleak, and somehow beautiful emotion of melancholy.

'Movies like Mr. Nobody': Modern Philosophical Movies

Slow cinema, also called philosophical cinema, or contemplative cinema, is a style of filmmaking emphasizing meditation over movement; it is often minimalist, observational, and can eschew narrative. The perfect pre-sleep watch!

'I Still Don't Get It': Best Mindfucks Ever

For many, the first movie that springs to mind is 'Fight Club', but other great mindfucks in this collection include 'Shutter Island', 'Donnie Darko', and - going back - 'El Topo'. Enjoy the 10 minutes of headscratching after the credits roll!

'Movies like American Beauty': Downright Nihilistic Comedies

These comedy flicks step beyond the boundaries of dark humor and into the realm of downright nihilism. Keep an eye out for boundary pushing work of Todd Solondz, as well as Tim Heidecker's debut film 'The Comedy'.
