Audiences used to really care about independent films – so why does it feel like no one’s watching them anymore? We can still see the remnants of that cultural impact whenever we’re watching a movie by Quentin Tarantino, Sofia Coppola, or Wes Anderson. These directors, who came up through the ‘90s independent film scene, established distinctive individual styles in our minds. But since then, priorities have shifted away from “adult” movies and toward mega-blockbuster tentpoles or prestige-minded streaming shows.
