List Criteria: Movies must convey a hipster mentality and/or be beloved by "hipsters"

Grab your mason jars, mustache comb, and ironic glasses, it’s time to rank the most hipster movies of all time! As any self-respecting hipster knows, liking anything, even a great hipster movie, is inherently uncool. That’s what makes figuring out which of these hipster films is the best especially difficult. Some may be considered among the best movies of all time, but since a real hipster could never like anything someone else does (even another hipster), it’s up to you to decide which one should be at the top.

From Lost in Translation to Garden State to anything made by Wes Anderson (Rushmore, Bottle Rocket, Royal Tenenbaums... the hipster movie list goes on), these great hipster films are fine pieces of movie making that just happen to feature characters who probably wear flannel while listening to Arcade Fire on vinyl. This list of the best hipster movies includes films that are either beloved by hipsters, or feature a hipster as one of the central characters. If your favorite hipster movie isn't on this hipster movies list, make sure to add it to the list yourself.

Despite stereotypes, the hipster subculture is about more than vintage bicycles and ironic T-shirts. They value progressive, independent thinking, and counter-culture tastes. They tend to lean towards androgyny, because classic male/female imagery is considered too mainstream and even offensive. In many ways, they are modern beatniks. If you consider yourself a hipster, then one of these films may well be your favorite movie of all time.

If you want more hipster action, check out the lamest celebrity hipster couples, the best jobs for hipsters, essential brands for your hipster lifestyle and the most hipster bands (warning: there are many).
