Films For Those Folks Who Want More of An Easy And Accessible Introduction To Artistically Inclined Cinema

EDIT: Big thanks to everybody for helping this reach 1,000+ likes!

EDIT 2: A nice little companion list that I crafted can be found here!

EDIT 3: Suggestions are still welcome, but this list is essentially finished in being built up. All the help has been much appreciated, and thank you guys very much for the support and many likes!

I really hope I'm not ripping off anybody, but these are essentially the films that I think would be perfect to help introduce art-house films to those who wish to see films of a more artistic variety. But as a precaution for those who don't want to dive directly into the Avant-garde, these films are much more accessible and easy…
