The arthouse action genre is an emerging film genre in contemporary cinema that traces its roots back to Asian and European films.[1][2] Characteristics of arthouse action films include stylized action, an arthouse atmosphere, and a disjointed, fragmented narrative with more complexity than the typical action flick. These come together to create a sense of "dreamy surrealism." [1][2]
