It's not a bad list if you're looking for stuff that's pretty mainstream. I mean, don't get me wrong..."films" used to be pretty edgy, but the reality is that everybody's making them now and there's really hardly any difference between a film and a movie anymore. If you're looking for true pretention you need to be searching out  pieces, and the ones I'm thinking about are extremely obscure.I pretty much doubt anybody here has heard of them. But yeah, for most people, this list works fine.

So,we can sum up the list by saying, "pretty much anything that's come out of France?"

Because honestly, I haven't heard of a single one of those films, and I suspect the point of the article is to humblebrag that the author  has seen them, at least enough to find them more pretentious than other films I've never heard of.

sigdiamond2000: Generally what people mean when they say "pretentious" is "I don't get it."

That's not fair. They may mean, "Whar's the splosions?"
