I think a lot of the recent films under Category:French_horror_films could count as being as examples of this new wave of films. Would that be considered original research?--CyberGhostface (talk) 19:04, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
- It would be original research if you don't have a source indicating such a relationship. I suppose if you have a source discussing recent French horror films, that information could be included on this page even if the "NFE" label wasn't mentioned. Aryder779 (talk) 21:07, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
- If anyone is interested in looking at the French New Extremity academically then I would suggest reading The New Extremism in Cinema by Tanya Horeck. Very interesting read which has been extremely influential on my current essay on whether or not the French New Extremism can be classified as a genre. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 13:51, 18 December 2015 (UTC)
Some genius's list of French films included a Belgian one - go figure, probably an American who still thinks Amsterdam is the capital city of Denmark. Anyways, I've made the necessary correction. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 19:29, 27 March 2010 (UTC)
The following are suggestions for further improving this page. I'll likely being conducting research in the coming weeks and months in an effort to expand on these ideas. I'll be doing this for a graduate film theory class in cooperation with the Wikipedia U.S. Education Program.
Article might consider what films and countries have been inspired stylistically by the New French Extremity movement, particularly its horror contingent. Immediately, A Serbian Film comes to mind. Perhaps Kill List, too, from Britain.
Article might consider style movements—in addition to the filmmakers already mentioned—that predated New French Extremity and likely influenced it. (For example, the article presently references Luis Buñel, but there is no mention of the Surrealist tradition that exemplified several of his works.)
Article could also talk about New French Extremism’s eventual expansion into, influence within other cinematic realms, like Hollywood. Specifically, I think of Alexandre Aja’s The Hill Have Eyes, which brought the New French Extremism style that he helped create with High Tension to the context of a well-budgeted, mainstream Hollywood remake.
