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)
How is this link?--CyberGhostface (talk) 21:48, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
Very interesting. However, the reference appears to be a blog, which I don't believe is a considered a reliable source.
I'll read it over and see what other sources I can find. Aryder779 (talk) 02:30, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
In the spirit of "ignore all rules", I added some information from that article/blog/whatever it is. Thanks for posting the link. Aryder779 (talk) 14:08, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
I didn't notice it was a blog. I just thought it was an editorial. Sorry.--CyberGhostface (talk) 15:58, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
How are these links? [1] [2] [3]--CyberGhostface (talk) 16:06, 22 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 (talk) 13:51, 18 December 2015 (UTC)

Belgian film[edit]

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 (talk) 19:29, 27 March 2010 (UTC)

Possible Expansions[edit]

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.

Funny Games?[edit]

How can Funny Games be influenced by these movies when it was released in '97, yet all noted French films were released in '98 oder later? (talk) 20:59, 19 August 2012 (UTC)


Shouldn't Irreversible by Gaspar Noe be included?~~
