What we’re about

Watching good movies in the Austin area and hanging out before/after the screenings at bars/restaurants close to the venues.

Any attempt to define "arthouse" movies, as it usually goes with definitions, is doomed to fail. A rough demarcation, nevertheless, could do some good. I see the artistic value of a cinematic production in its conscious or unconsciousness attempt for reaching emotional/intellectual depth, to defamiliarize the familiar, to bring out some unknown to the view, to shake and enrich our existence. As such, the attempt is more important than the result and the failures valuable in one way or another.

We do not need to watch Godard backwards to count as an "arthouse movie" club, although that sounds fun. But we won't watch the 537th remake of Superman or James Bond here. Everyone else does. Let's do something more interesting.
