Category talk:Anti-modernist films

Jump to navigation Jump to search


This is a poorly-named category. Modernism is a well-defined term for an artistic movement concerned with the rejection of traditional art films. However, this category is concerned with films opposed to 'modern life', and more specificaly consumerism. I would suggest retitling it 'anti-consumerist films'. Thoughts?

The term "anti-consumerist films" might not cover the whole meaning of this category. This category is suppose to concern films that reflect Development criticism, where the term "anti-modernism" is used. So, in that sense, the term "modernism" is not at all related to "modernism" as an art movement.Maziotis 11:26, 23 April 2007 (UTC)[reply]

In that case, you should rewrite the description on the category's main page, because that's not clear.Cop 633 11:32, 23 April 2007 (UTC)[reply]

I have change the description to better fit the description. Perhaps it would benefit with further rewording.Maziotis 11:45, 23 April 2007 (UTC)[reply]

I suggest the title anti-civilization since that is the only thing these movies have in common. Anti-Modernism is not a accurate description of the critisism offered in these films and is also confusing since the word modernism is almsost never used outside academia in a way that could be relevant here. -Mazmar —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:42, 3 June 2009 (UTC)[reply]
