What constitutes art? This is a film by a renowned graffiti artist. Thanks to jaytoast for the recommendation.
Pollock (2000) (2001)
A film about the life and career of the American painter, Jackson Pollock; this explores philosophy of art.
I Shot Andy Warhol (1996)
Based on the true story of Valerie Solanas who was a 60s radical preaching hatred toward men in her "Scum" manifesto. She wrote a screenplay for a film that she wanted Andy Warhol to produce, but he continued to ignore her. So she shot him. This movie is on the list because it explores avant garde film.
My Dinner with Andre (1981)
Explores philosophy of theater.
I am seeking movies for a curriculum on Film Studies & Philosophy I'm writing for my homeschooled teen-ager and me. This section deals with aesthetics. What constitutes beauty in the arts? Comments and suggestions are enthusiastically welcomed. :-)
