Favourite Art House Films

Photobucket

Expressive, beautiful and often rather colourful the films I hold as my favourite art house film have those as common threads. They are the films that make you think in a way you've never thought before. They make magic on the screen through tone and texture, creating an emotional response. Champions of the genre are Guy Maddin, Wong Kar Wai, Ingmar Bergman and Lee Myung-se.
