The Indi's This website features independant, documentary and foreign films since 1979. They have a Gay & Lesbian, Jewish category and more. The format is simple and uncluttered, just the cover jpeg, the trailer, a description, some critical reviews and "if you like this--watch..."—an excellent way to explore related filmography.
