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.
