Film, like fashion is a form of escapism, expressing ideas, and/or telling a story, which makes it, like fashion, art really. I'm always on the lookout for a cool indie film chock full of Tumblr-esque stills, so without further ado, here are some of my recent favorites:
The Diary of a Teenage Girl, 2015
Director: Marielle Heller
A funny and insightful coming of age film set in the 70s.
Léon: The Professional, 1994
Director: Luc Besson
I'm in love with little 90s Natalie Portman (that hair!)
I Am Love, 2010
Director: Luca Guadagnino
It stars my absolute favorite Tilda Swinton and is directed by my other absolute favorite Luca Guadagnino; the two together make up a dream team. This movie has the dream house, dream wardrobe, dream food, dream everything (except the ending....)
Director: Jon Favreau
Hard for a vegetarian like myself to sit through but still worth the watch.
Heaven Knows What, 2014
Directors: Benny Safdie, Josh Safdie
This movie is admittedly a little slow, but nonetheless unbelievably raw; no glorification or sugarcoating what so ever.
