        "I'm entirely unsure if this is a decent solution since I dont know what would be defined as a "hipster movie". But going by what I know about the definition of hipster, Id say its a decent solution. Although the topic creator was looking for movies and not a single movie, It seems that most of the solutions offered only lead to one link or one selection when the topic creator was looking for several solutions and not just one. I have to give this a medium rating based on what I know in good judgement."

        "American Beauty is a real slice of life. On the surface there doesn't seem to be a lot to the story other than just a glimpse into American life. There is much more to this movie and depth to the lives lead and how life goes. A little strange, but mostly life behind closed doors."

        "This is a really odd film that does an admirable job of pointing out some of the absurdities and disappointments of modern life. The performances are excellent and the direction insightful. It does seem to meander a bit, here and there, but overall it's well worth watching."

        "Hard to watch after the Kevin Spacey debacle. It's basically just an entire movie about how messed up life can get if nothing matters to you but yourself. 1.0 out of 5 stars, Hate your family, run away with drug dealer. Marines are no good. Nothing redeeming about this film."

        "It was a brilliantly weird movie. Mostly weirded out with the roses theme whenever Lester lusts over Angela. But this movie explores different themes and even dares to approach issues like homosexuality and homophobia. Very good movie that is worth a watch."

        "American Beauty is quite a deep and dark film and I think Amelie has that sort of aspect underneath too. I don't know, that may just be my interpretation and I could be wrong, but I think that the two films are similar in the way they show sides of love."

        "It's a parody of your typical American family and the "American Dream", it's also about liberation form the constricting world and set of morals by society. American Beauty is not necessarily funny but it's beautiful on its own ways."
