First of what is art cinema it can be defined as explicitly against the classical narrative mode, especially against the cause-effect linkage of events.(Bordwell, 1981)
In order to see these types of film you must understand where to see them as you wouldn’t really see any of these movies at main cinemas, more likely show in small indie theatres where film festivals are typically held.
One of the films i saw a sniped of is “Breathless 2”
In the clip it shows how a women is framed from the back of her head talking. To audience not fully thinking nor understand art cinema would take this as lazy, boring but it was construed like this on purpose for audiences.
One film scholar who excels in the genre of “art Cinema:” is David Bordwell as he used his own distinct conventions. A four ways he incorporates his own art cinema into his films are; ambiguity, lack of omniscient narrative, depictions of the world drawn from a variety of viewpoints and unsolved endings.(Gierse, 2004)
A recent film i have discovered was the 1948 film ” The Red Shoes” directed by Michael Powell. This British film is classified as apart of this art films and is reviewed to be one of the best film all time by Martin Scorsese and Brian De Palma.
“The cinematographer Jack Cardiff wrote about how he manipulated camera speed to make the dancers seem to linger
at the tops of their jumps; the art direction won an Oscar”(Ebert, 2005)
