Narrowing down the best independent flicks is no easy task. OK, it’s not like shoveling coal or working in a mine but there are a lot of amazing indie films out there! To narrow it down to five, we tried to focus on early independent films by some directors who made it big. Tarantino flicks like Reservoir Dogs are not on this list because – everyone and their mother has seen Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. There are also great indie horror films like Blair Witch Project or Texas Chainsaw Massacre, but… they’re not in the top five – sorry. So here we go – feel free to rip us apart and add your own five picks. We can take it.
