Reading Response on "Experimental Film"

When I was in college, I always thought why do people make these nonsense experimental films? What the point? Why do those filmmakers want to be different from mainstream ones? They don't care about earning profits? Are the all rich?

Now, I can understand a little better. They want to explore things like scientis. Not all the films need to have narrative, and some can have jump cuts. Who made all the rules of films? They seem like they are not obligated to respect 180 degree rule, contunuity or any other rules. By not having narratives, some experimental films show more aestehtically and peotically done pieces.
