Based on the quite small number of American independent films I've seen, here's the supposed masterpieces. I've cut out those films that are mainly made in other countries than USA, but are partly produced there.

Feel free to give me any suggestions. Please, do correct me if I'm completely lost with these picks. I'm sure that many films are missing here, even those I've seen many times.
