American Independent Classics
I just read that recent article about all these revolutionary cinematic movements that impacted the world, but the one I was suprised not to hear about was the rise of American Independent productions. I geuss my main question is: What was the name of the sudden rise of all these autarchic movies? It mainly started booming in the 90s when artist like Quentin Tarantino, Kevin Smith, Paul Thomas Anderson, Gus Van Sant, Richard Linklater, Robert Rodriguez, and especially Wes Anderson, began to bend the rules of filmmaking. It was practically the birth of Mirimax before it was bought out. Nonetheless, they completely undermined Hollywood and started a new revolution, so there had to be a name for this movement, right?
