Cinema of Cool

Came across this phrase while listening to Kevin Smith In Joe Rogan’s Podcast. I found the concept of movies where coolness is the main aesthetic and seems to be cool for its own sake pretty interesting. It’s hard to define but you know it when you see it. Here’s a list of films I consider as part of this canon.

  • The Matrix
  • Pulp Fiction
  • Cowboy Bebop: The Movie
  • Blade II
  • Desperado
  • From Dusk Till Dawn
  • Sin City
  • True Romance
  • Reservoir Dogs
  • Kill Bill: Vol. 1
  • Shaft
  • Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood
  • Fight Club
  • The Bourne Identity
  • The Bourne Ultimatum
  • The Bourne Supremacy
