It is nothing new to make fun of hipster culture, but this film makes it an art form -- literally. From Italian art collective Ground's Oranges, Stuff Pick goes beyond unnecessary eye glasses or mason jars to compile stereotypes characteristic of today's hipster culture.

This includes shots of a bearded man with many triangles, a floral crown-wearing girl smoking a cigarette, hashtags, and animal head costumes. Some references are less obvious like a cassette tape spinning on a record player, with some even more obscure including purposefully nonsensical shots. The French film critic explaining the movie's meaning in the middle perfectly sums up the artistic endeavor as being both meta and pretentious (both of which hipsters love).
