Fin-de-siecle

by jef costello

The term sometimes encompasses both the closing and onset of an era, as it was felt to be a period of degeneration, but at the same time a period of hope for a new beginning. (Wiki)

To me these films are representing the zeitgeist of 2000’s on every level: artistic, narration, ethics, pop culture, perception, mental state and so on… And the story doesn’t have to take place in 2000’s too, obviously it can depict today by telling the yesterday. They may not be the best ones, but hey you got the point!
