* ''[[Film/CelineAndJulieGoBoating Céline et Julie vont en bateau]]'' (''Celine and Julie Go Boating'') is a perfectly straight example of this trope. It's French, three hours long, includes seemingly completely unnecessary scenes, has a plot (when you get to it) whose closest comparison would be ''Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind'', and the ending... borrows heavily from Theater of the Absurd, that's all we'll say. It's actually un film très charmant, if you're patient with it. In fact it is director Jacques Rivette's most commercially successful and accessible film. If you want a real challenge, see if you can sit through all 13 hours of "Out 1" if you can find a screening that is.

* French director Creator/RobertBresson has a SignatureStyle that involves meticulous attention to mechanical motions and the use of nonprofessional actors who give intentionally lifeless and mechanical performances. His themes are almost always depressing, to top it off. Nonetheless, he's very highly regarded by critics who often tout ''Au hasard, Balthasar'' as the greatest movie ever made with an animal as the main character (a donkey); other notable films of his include ''Pickpocket'', a study of crime and guilt, and ''L'argent'' another crime drama where the passing of a forged banknote inadvertently leads to multiple murders.

* ''[[http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perceval_le_Gallois_(film) Perceval le Gallois]]'' from Eric Rohmer is very much this. In a attempt to stay faithful to Chrétien de Troyes's text (and to be as literary and unrealistic as possible), it's very distanced : all the effects are intentionally obvious, all the decors are made of monochrome painted cardboard and aren't on scale (to emulate Medieval illustration), the background is plain blue etc.To be more up to the trope, Rohmer modernized the text of Chrétien de Troyes in a way that it is technically modern French, but with the original syntax and metric (octosyllabic versification) and often with an archaic (but correct) vocabulary.

[[folder: Theater]]
* Mark from ''Theatre/{{Rent}}'' begins the show by announcing that he is no longer shooting with a script, instead deciding he is making a documentary. He ends up documenting the year in the friend's lives, even quitting his high paying job to do so, and the end result is basically a montage of the characters/actors smiling at the camera.
** In the movie version the film has more to it, including being more about the HIV certain members are dying from and being dedicated to Angel, [[spoiler: who passes away from AIDS]], but the end result is still mainly a montage.

* Most of Peter Greenaway's ''oeuvre'' fits this trope. While some films, such as ''The Draughtsman's Contract'' and ''Literature/ThePillowBook'' are fairly well rooted in reality and understandable (for the most part) to the average audience, works like ''Prospero's Books'' take neo-baroque to an [[MindScrew incomprehensible]] new level.

* ''TheTreeOfLife'' fits this trope, possibly being the most abstract film to get such major stars and a $30 million+ budget.

Added DiffLines:

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=om3xUWSZLVM Episode 46]] of ''WebVideo/FromMansfieldWithLove'' is the trailer for Yates's film of ''Lover's Vows'' [[WantonCrueltyToTheCommonComma (sic)]], which plays this trope entirely for laughs.

** Also the "Itchy and Scratchy" replacement, "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2_dhUv_CrI Worker and Parasite]]" is a faux-Eastern European variant of this trope and a parody of the ''TomAndJerry'' episodes that were produced in Czechoslovakia around the sixties.
