The Best Hipster Movies

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

The best hipster films are a cross-section of the best movies of all time that appeal specifically to an audience that doesn't care. If you subscribe to the traditional hipster mantra, liking something and/or bringing it to the public's attention makes it immediately uncool and not likable so, in reality, this list is really a bit of an oxymoron, since a real hipster could never like anything someone else does (even another hipster).

But if you get away from trying to understand hipsters and just look at the movies made by and/or featuring hipsters, you get a look at some of the greatest hipster movies ever. 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 wear tighter clothing than the Joe Average movie person.

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. All genres have been included. Hipsters are a youthful subculture that values 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 yourself are a hipster then one of these films may well be one of your favorites.
