How do you classify “what’s a hipster movie?” or simply put “what’s a cool movie”. In my opinion, hipsters usually fall for the films that are about eccentric characters. Also, if the film is intellectually stimulating or weirdly funny, it is given that hipsters would love it. But here’s the most important criteria: the film should make them feel that it is “cool” to be “different” or “weird”. With that said, let’s jump right into the list of best coolest movies. You can stream some of these best hipster movies on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
10. The Perks of Being Wallflower
The Perks of Being a Wallflower’ is a coming-of-age tale of an introvert teen, Charlie, who enters high school as freshman and finds difficult to intermingle until he is befriended by two seniors, Sam & Patrick. A friendship that teaches him to be comfortable in his own skin and explore the new dynamism of relationships. The biggest achievement of the film is how beautifully it captures the rich tapestry of growing up experiences soaked in lessons learnt for lifetime. It also shows that every individual in his or her own way is beautiful and worthy.
9. Donnie Darko
Donnie Darko is a cinematic wonder. It has a grandiose vision with a sprawling imagination of an affluent adolescent. Down to it’s insidiously naughty elements, “Donnie Darko” is about a young rebel “Donnie” who pays odes to the likes of “The Catcher in the Rye” and successfully brings glib humor through intimidating characters and subjects. Donnie is as weird and wonderful as a movie character can get.
