Art House Cinema

Art House films are critically-acclaimed movies that don't necessarily cause a stampede at the box-office. These so-called 'minor' works are generally seen only at Film Festivals or a few selective theatres, but they stay in the mind, for better or worse. Below is a list of films in Alice's Collection that for one unexplained reason or another, generally didn't quite get the exposure they may have deserved when originally released. Enjoy finding many of cinema's 'gems' in this section. Right: Peter Greenaway's 'The Baby Of Macon'.
