What are the point of these? I've seen a few movies that are considered Art House Films and I gotta say, I don't get it. Two of the ones that I've seen are German (Solo Sunny and Barbara). During their run times, I was thinking "Okay, when are they going to get to the point?" Then, when the "point" came, I thought "That's it?"I researched the movies after the fact and discovered that they are both very well received (especially Barbara). But the majority of the movie was nothing but silence, and what dialogue was there felt trite and pointless. I didn't feel like I got anything out of them, yet they are generally considered to be great movies. I also saw a more recent movie called We Are What We Are and, again, it was boring as hell up until the ending and the ending was hardly worth the wait. But I researched it and, again, found that it was generally well received by critics.
I will say that I enjoyed Drive a lot, though, but that's because, even though it was slow in the beginning, there was a cool story and things actually happened.
I'm not somebody who needs constant explosions or anything like that and I can enjoy slow paced movies if done right. But in my experience wit "art house" films, I can't understand the appeal or the point of them. Anyone care to explain?
