    The French are seen as fair game for ribbing, from stereotypes involving cheese, wine, and casual promiscuity to notions of a forever-striking and layabout nation populated by surrender monkeys.

    Perhaps this explains the dismissive critical reaction to modern French horror; after all, other nations have had relatively successful in both commercial terms and column inches horror resurgences, but we are guilty of under-appreciating the talent currently emanating from France.

    Consider the publicity afforded for other foreign horror films in the United Kingdom: spooky ghosts and ethereal notions have long been a секс of Japanese horror, from Kwaidana portmanteau of traditional and folklore tales, to the onslaught of the successful Ju-On series. They do, however, perform well financially. We British have had a fair stab at releasing quite nasty little pictures in recent times like Eden Lakeand Australia has put forth at least one successfully brutal effort in the shape of Wolf Creekwhich both performed well.

    In terms of quality, however, the last decade of артхаус has undoubtedly belonged to the French. For a nation most commonly associated with well-made and distinctly de France human drama the work of Louis Malle, for instanceor the nouvelle vague instigated by Godard, Truffaut, et al. These works not only influenced later horror cinema but seem to have come full circle in France.

    The work of Gasper Noe, Catherine Breillat, and Секс Dumont features explicit and ghastly sequences, yet under the banner of arthouse the merits aesthetic or otherwise are at least considered. How disgusting!

    Thus begins a battle of wits, sure, but with the added assistance of секс, fire, scissors, etc. Whilst the motives and context within the film become секс clear and, come the conclusion, almost indecently moving in a Darwinian, basic human emotions spherethe primary focal point is inevitably drawn toward brutal and unrelenting violence — thoroughly modern in its execution bloody, visceral, inventive yet tethered to a notion of a classic al battle between good and evil forces.

    Catherine Breillat, a purveyor of transgressive sexuality, has railed throughout her career against a cultural mood that, in her eyes, would not accept female sexuality as readily or as openly as they would male.

    In truth, the discourse that emerged following Antichrist surrounding issues of gender is hardly revolutionary; women have been mistreated and misrepresented in cinema since film began.

    In addition, von Trier presents a female character Charlotte Gainsbourgwho, actually, is infinitely more interesting than her smug, self-satisfied husband Willem Dafoe. At first glance, this is an ethos that can be readily discerned in many recent French horror efforts.

    Yet a snobbish school of thought has arisen: if an auteur like von Trier or Breillat explores sexuality or gender issues, then one must consider their argument, and label it misogynistic, misandrist, or neither accordingly. Should an examination of sexuality be offered under the banner of horror, however, then one may dismiss it as a cheap ploy, just another meaningless facet of exploitation.

    Essentially, however, this lesbian chic transforms into an exploration of female empowerment; the metamorphosis seen in Frontier s of Yasmine Karina Testa from a woman with flowing locks in the early stages of pregnancy, to short-haired terroriser covered in blood and mud, is not dissimilar to the Joan of? Whilst living in an idyllic setting in Thailand, Jeanne believes she glimpses George on a videotape shown at a local fundraising event.

    The parallels between this feature and Antichrist are significant. Секс concern a couple who are distraught by the loss in either sense of their child; he is the more stoic and measured, she the more hysterical and overtly affected. Both travel from their homes секс scary in a somewhat illustrative and existential sense in Antichrist and in very real way for most of Vinyan territory.

    The male characters, once in control of their female counterparts, become increasingly marginalised and dominated by both the environment and their wives. The technical артхаус and sheer confidence on display in Vinyan is indicative of modern Gallic cinema, perhaps afforded due to the nurturing nature of the French government with секс to their film culture.

    One wonders whether the similarities between these two films are purely accidental or whether they indicate a certain cultural aura.

    If one aligns with the view that these may be inherently misogynistic, then perhaps a notion of артхаус female gender as equally unforgiving and evil as nature itself can be seen as a revolt against postmodern feminism.

    In this sense, the explicit nature of this wave of filmmaking can be interpreted as a riposte to modern cultural sensibilities. Can one take the current surge in provocative Gallic horror as a direct confrontation with the state of French society?

    Indeed, there is a rich history of dissent; Jean-Luc Godard, for one, made the merciless satire Week Enda damning indictment of bourgeois culture that артхаус descends into chaos and doom as the film progresses. His scathing attitude is mirrored by not just Breillat et al. This was the context under which Gens was writing, and one can see similar cinematic revolts.

    The notion of a supposedly idyllic rural retreat has long been a staple of the horror genre, but recently the countryside appears to be the location du jour for extreme brutality and terror. Perhaps this theme ties into anti-imperial артхаус marauding invaders who come unstuck at the hands of native inhabitants, or perhaps, as in Britain, class and conflicting sectors of society remains a vital arena for struggle.

    The issue of sexuality, too, provides the directors with added ammunition to provoke: incest is артхаус feature of Seul Contre Tous and Frontier sand whilst lesbianism is covered in Martyrs and Haute Tensionthe homosexual tensions Marc who appears to be struggling with his own anxieties about sex encounters in Calvaire with his hotel-owner cum tormentor lends the picture an uneasy ambience — the terrifying bar scene where the local men dance together is particularly squeamish.

    For a nation that perhaps views itself as indivisible culturally or geographicallythe attempts to actively create tension in these areas — particularly in the theme of urbanity versus the borders — секс a collective sentiment amongst these new purveyors of horror.

    Alas, the temptations that Hollywood dangles before prominent up-and-coming directors has seeped into the Gallic horror division. Either for the money or just because nothing else is readily available one struggles to imagine it is for artistic licence, given the generic pictures they go on to producehungry and talented артхаус like Xavier Gens and Alexandre Aja have bitten from the poisoned tinseltown apple, delivering passable-at-best banalities like Hitman and Mirrorsrespectively.

    At the same time I was receiving forty, fifty American propositions. I really wanted to stay in France to make films because for me it was much more interesting, but after a while you kinda feel desperate and you go to people who desire you much more.

    An art film is typically a serious, independent filmaimed at a niche market rather than a mass market audience. Film critics and film studies scholars typically define an art film as possessing "formal qualities that mark them as different from mainstream Артхакс films". Film scholar David Bordwell describes art cinema as "a film genrewith its own distinct conventions". Art артхаус секм usually present their films at special theaters repertory cinemas or, in the U.

    The term art film is much арртхаус widely used in North America, the United Kingdom, and Australia, compared to the mainland Europe, where the terms сокс films and national cinema e. German national cinema are used instead. Since they are aimed at small, niche-market audiences, art films rarely acquire the financial backing that would permit артхаус production budgets associated with widely released blockbuster films.

    Art film directors make up for these constraints by creating a different type of film, one that typically uses lesser-known film actors or even amateur actorsand modest sets to make films that focus much more on developing ideas, exploring new narrative techniques, and attempting new film-making conventions. Such films contrast sharply with mainstream blockbuster films, which are geared more towards linear storytelling and entertainment.

    Film critic Roger Ebert called Chungking Expressa critically acclaimed art film, "largely a cerebral experience" that one enjoys "because of what you know about film". Since art films have small initial investment costs, they only need to appeal to a small portion of mainstream audiences to become financially viable. The forerunners of art films include Italian silent film L'InfernoD. Griffith 's Intolerance and the works of Russian filmmaker Sergei Eisensteinwho influenced the development of European cinema movements for decades.

    The international critical renown that Eisenstein garnered from this film enabled him to direct October as part of a grand 10th anniversary celebration of the October Revolution of He later directed The General Line in In the s, film societies began advocating the notion that films could be divided into векс cinema directed towards a mass audience and a serious art cinema aimed at an intellectual audience".

    In England, Alfred Hitchcock and Ivor Montagu formed a film society and imported films they thought were "artistic achievements", such as "Soviet films of dialectical montage, and the expressionist films of the Universum Film A. UFA studios in Germany". Чекс cinema pur film movement included several notable Dada artists.

    The Dadaists used film to transcend narrative storytelling conventions, bourgeois traditions, and conventional Aristotelian notions of time and space by creating a flexible montage of time and space. Richter falsely claimed that his film Rhythmus 21 was the first abstract film ever created. In fact, he was preceded by the Italian Futurists Bruno Corra and Arnaldo Ginna between and [11] as reported in the Futurist Manifesto of Cinema артххаусas well as by fellow German artist Walter Ruttmann, who produced Lichtspiel Opus 1 in Nevertheless, Richter's film Rhythmus 21 is considered an important early abstract film.

    In the s and s, Hollywood films could be divided into the artistic aspirations of literary adaptations like John Ford 's The Informer and Eugene O'Neill 's The Long Voyage Homeand the money-making "popular-genre films" such артхавс gangster thrillers. William Siska argues that Артхаус neorealist films from the mid-to-late s, such as Open CityPaisaand Bicycle Thieves can be deemed as another "conscious art film movement". In the late s, the U.

    After the Second World War, " In the late s, French filmmakers began to produce films that were influenced by Italian Neorealism [12] and classical Hollywood cinema[12] a style that critics called the French New Wave. Although never a formally organized movement, New Wave filmmakers were linked by their self-conscious rejection of classical cinematic form and their spirit of youthful iconoclasmand their films are an example of European art cinema.

    Auteur theory holds that the director is the "author" of his films, with a personal signature visible from артхаус to film. The French New Wave movement секс into the s. During the s, the term "art film" began to be much more widely used in the United States than in Europe.

    In the U. In the s, "art film" became a euphemism in the U. By the s, the term was used to describe sexually explicit European films with artistic structure such as the Swedish film I Am Curious Yellow. With this approach, a broad range of films, such as a s Hitchcock film, a s experimental underground film, a European auteur film, a U. By the s and s, the term "art film" became conflated with "independent film" in the U.

    Companies such as Miramax Films distributed independent films that were deemed commercially viable. When major motion-picture studios noted the niche appeal of independent films, they created special divisions dedicated to non-mainstream fare, such as the Fox Searchlight Pictures division of Twentieth Century Foxthe Focus Features секс of Universalthe Sony Pictures Classics division of Sony Pictures Entertainmentand the Paramount Vantage division of Paramount.

    Film critics have debated whether films from these divisions can be considered "independent films", given they have financial backing from major studios. Paglia states that young people from the s do not "have patience for the long, slow take that deep-think European directors once specialized in", an approach which gave "luxurious scrutiny of the tiniest facial expressions or the chilly sweep of a sterile room or bleak landscape".

    According to director, producer, and distributor Roger Cormanthe "s and s was the time of the art film's greatest influence. After that, the influence waned. Hollywood absorbed the lessons of the European films and incorporated those lessons into their films.

    Corman notes that, "Hollywood itself has expanded, radically, its aesthetic range There's a new audience that has learned about art films at the video store. Film scholar David Bordwell outlined the academic definition of "art film" in a article entitled "The Art Cinema as a Mode of Film Practice", which contrasts art films with the mainstream films of classical Hollywood cinema. Mainstream Hollywood-style films use a clear narrative form to organize the film into a series of "causally related events taking place in space and time", with every scene driving towards a goal.

    The plot of mainstream films is driven by a well-defined protagonist, fleshed out with clear characters, and strengthened with "question-and-answer logic, problem-solving routines, [and] deadline plot structures". The film is then tied together with fast pacing, a musical soundtrack to cue the appropriate audience emotions, and tight, seamless editing. In contrast, Bordwell states that "the art cinema motivates its narrative by two principles: realism and authorial expressiveness".

    Art films deviate from the mainstream "classical" norms of film making in that they typically deal with more episodic narrative structures with a "loosening of the chain артхуас cause and effect". Mainstream films also deal with moral dilemmas or identity crises, but these issues are usually resolved by the end of the film. In art films, the dilemmas are probed and investigated in a pensive fashion, but usually without a clear resolution at the end of the film.

    The story in an art film often has a secondary role to character development and exploration of ideas through lengthy sequences of dialogue. If an art film has a story, it is артхсус a drifting sequence of vaguely defined or ambiguous episodes. There may артхаус unexplained gaps in the film, deliberately unclear sequences, or extraneous sequences that are not related to previous scenes, which force the viewer to subjectively make their own interpretation of the film's message.

    Art films often "bear the marks of a distinctive visual style" and the authorial approach of the director. Why tell the story in this way? Bordwell claims that "art cinema itself is a [film] genre, with its own distinct conventions".

    He секс that a film is considered to be an art film based on artistic status in the same way film genres can сексс based on aspects of films such as their budgets blockbuster films or B-movies or their star performers Adam Sandler films. There are scholars who point out that mass market films such as those produced in Hollywood appeal to a less discerning audience.

    To bridge the disconnect between popular taste and high culture, these film critics are expected to explain unfamiliar concepts and make them appealing to cultivate a more discerning movie-going public. For example, a film critic can help the audience—through his reviews—think seriously about films by providing the terms of analysis артхаус these art films. So when controversial themes such as lesbianism or torture are shown, the public will not immediately dismiss or attack the movie where they are informed by critics of the film's value such as how it depicts realism.

    Here, art theaters or art векс that exhibit art films are seen as "sites арихаус cultural enlightenment" that draw critics and intellectual audiences alike.

    It serves as a place where секс critics can experience сексс and an artistic atmosphere where they can draw insights and material. The following list is a small, partial sample of films with "art film" qualities, compiled to give a general sense of what directors and films are considered to have "art film" characteristics. The films in this list demonstrate one or more of the characteristics of art films: a serious, non-commercial, or independently made film that секс not aimed at a mass audience.

    Some of the films on this list are also considered to be "auteur" films, independent films, or experimental films. In some cases, critics disagree over whether a film is mainstream or not. For example, while some critics called Gus Van Sant 's My Own Private Idaho an "exercise in film experimentation" of "high artistic quality", [26] The Washington Post called it an ambitious mainstream film. The films on this list are notable either because they с major awards or critical praise from influential film critics, or because they introduced an innovative narrative or film-making technique.

    In артаус s and s, filmmakers did not set out to make "art films", and film critics did not use the term "art film". The U. Murnau uses distorted art design and groundbreaking cinematography to create an exaggerated, fairy-tale-like world rich with symbolism and imagery.

    Some of these early, artistically-oriented films were financed by wealthy individuals rather than film companies, particularly in cases where the content of the film was controversial or unlikely to attract an audience. In артхаус late s, UK director Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger made The Red Shoesa film about ballet, which stood out from mainstream-genre films of the era.

    This was an alternative to the mainstream commercial cinema known for its serious content, realism and naturalism, with a keen eye on the social-political climate of the times. This movement is distinct from mainstream Bollywood cinema and began ескс the same time as French and Japanese New Wave. Some of the most internationally acclaimed films made in the сексс were The Apu Trilogy —a trio of films that tell the story of сеус poor country boy's growth to adulthood, and Satyajit Ray 's Distant Thunderwhich tells the story of a farmer during a famine in Bengal.

    Japanese filmmakers produced a артхпус of films that broke with convention. Akira Kurosawa секс Rashomonthe first Japanese film to be widely screened in the West, depicts four witnesses' contradictory accounts of a rape and murder. InKurosawa directed Ikirua film about a Tokyo bureaucrat struggling to find a meaning for his life.

    A year later, Mizoguchi directed Sansho the Bailiffwhich tells the story of two aristocratic children sold into slavery; in addition to dealing with serious themes such as the loss of freedom, the film features beautiful images and long, complicated shots.

    The s was an important period in art film, with the release of a number of groundbreaking films giving rise to the European art cinema. Godard, a leading figure of the French New Wave, would continue to make innovative films throughout the decade, proposing a whole new style of film-making. Following the success of BreathlessGoddard made two more very influential films, Contempt and Pierrot le fouin and respectively. Italian director Michelangelo Севс helped revolutionize filmmaking with such films секч La Nottea complex examination of a failed marriage that dealt with issues such as anomie and sterility; Eclipseартхаус a young woman who is unable to form a solid relationship with her boyfriend because of his materialistic nature; Red Deserthis first color film, which deals with the need to adapt to the modern world; and Blowuphis first English-language film, which examines issues of perception and reality as it follows a young photographer's attempt to discover whether he had photographed a murder.

    Swedish director Ingmar Bergman began the s with chamber pieces such as Winter Light and The Silencewhich deal with such themes as emotional isolation and a lack of communication. His films from the second half of the decade, such as PersonaShameand A Passiondeal with the idea of film as an artifice. The intellectual and visually expressive films of Tadeusz Konwickisuch as All Souls' Day Zaduszkiand Saltoinspired discussions about war and raised existential questions on behalf of their everyman protagonists.

    Сеск Fellini's La Dolce Vita depicts a succession of nights and dawns in Rome as witnessed by a cynical journalist. The film Секс Year at Marienbad by director Alain Resnais examines perception and reality, using grand tracking shots that became widely influential.

    Robert Bresson 's Au Hasard Balthazar скес Mouchette are notable for their naturalistic, elliptical style. Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky 's film Andrei Rublev is a portrait of the medieval Russian icon painter of the same name.

    The film is also about artistic freedom and the possibility and necessity of making art for, and in секс face of, a repressive authority.
