1.
a film often made on a low, almost bare bones budget(outside the studio system), that is heralded by the underground(read: hipsters)for its usually "new, fresh, and daring" take on a number of issues such as; gay life, sex, gay sex, teen angst, gay teen angst, etc.

Often seen as pretentious by anyone not cultured enough to understand the "gravitas of the subject matter"

Best paired with a post viewing discussion at a local (read: unincorporated) coffee shop.

Often leaves you with more questions than answers.
