The Best Movies Where Nothing Really Happens

It's not like absolutely nothing happens in these movies, it's more like nothing happens in the traditional sense of Hollywood storytelling. These movies (most of them indie films) feature no real story or major plot points, but are more artistic in nature. Sure, not a lot happens as far as the story goes, but it's all about the feel of it, right?! Right. These are the best movies where nothing happens, but will totally make you think.
