'Movies Like Midnight in Paris': Anderson-Esque Movies

Exhausted Wes Anderson's oeuvre, but love his distinctive style? Then check out this list of movies heavily influenced by his directorial style. Make sure to check out 'Eagle vs. Shark' starring Jemaine from 'Flight of the Concords'!

'Movies Like The Way Way Back': Dysfunctional Family Dramedy

Movies in the vein of 'Little Miss Sunshine' and 'The Way Way Back': indie dramedies portraying the rivalries, squabbles, and resentments of seriously dysfunctional families. Hopefully they don't hit too close to home!

Modern Comedies of Neurosis

A trend that got rolling with the 'almost too neurotic to function' comedic maestro Woody Allen: enjoy watching these over-sensitive protagonists kvetch till they drop. Make sure to check out 'The Squid and the Whale' for some dysfunctional family fun!

'New York, New York': An Allen-Esque View of NYC

A bunch of 21st century, Allen-esque indies that follow neurotic, aimless, and verbose New Yorkers, as they chase equally neurotic (inevitably white) love interests around the tree-lined streets of Brooklyn. Quite a different picture than you'd get from a Spike Lee.

'Movies like Perks of Being a Wallflower': Indie Kids Growing Up

Modern movies in the vein of 'Charlie Bartlett' or 'Rushmore': coming-of-age comedies with an independent feel to them. Watch these quirky youths becoming quirky young adults (who will, we can only assume, eventually become quirky senior-citizens)!

'See You After Class': Student/Teacher Romance Movies

This collection of student/teacher romance movies imparts the phrase 'see me after class' with a whole new meaning. Make sure to check out 'The Boy Next Door', with J-Lo, for a recent addition to the niche, or go classic with raunchy 80s dramedy 'My Tutor'.

'Bitterest of the Sweet': Best Modern Dramedy

For those not familiar with the term, this collection offers the very best dramatic comedy modern cinema has to offer: including Paul Giamatti in 'Sideways', Paul Giamatii in 'Win Win', Paul Giamatti in 'American Splendor'... wait a minute
