    If you could define why something is art it wouldn't be art. If a film resonates with you, challenges your beliefs, makes you think, then I would call it art. It has nothing to with cinematography, it's popularity or anything like that. True art by it's very nature is intangible, if it wasn't what would be the point.

    I would think cinematography.

    From watching 'Road to Perdition' where the story is simply drama but the way the camera moves and the lighting of the film really turns it into some sort of artistic masterpiece.

    But some people develop a misconception that art films are vague & avant garde when in truth most of the greatest visual films I've seen have been praised by various sets of audiences.

    When people label a film "artistic" it's specifically because of cinematography like a person above had mentioned. To me "artistic" is also giving an audience a depth of another dimension. Lars Von Trier I believe is director who falls into that category. The link below is a film by the director I mentioned. To me, specifically that's how I view "artistic" film.

    I forgot to mention Old Boy and Moon, though not as heavy as Antichrist.

    Technically, any movie is a work of art: just like sculpture, paintings, drawings etc. But I know what you're saying. An art film usually has a very small budget; has fewer big stars; more little-known stars; has a message, often a social message.
