    Otherwise you'll be agreeing with Hitler. See how this is just the sort of evil trap Hitler would lay?

    yeah but hitler failed at painting, not filmmaking

    by the way dont watch The Comedy even though its got the guys from tim and eric awesome show in it. tim and eric are normally kind of amusing and influential but this movie is godawful boring. its actually pretty much the worst thing even as mumblecore goes.

    Sometimes on a lazy Saturday the kids will have some of their friends over and decide to make a movie. Then they rush around filming stuff for two hours. The older brother grumpily edits it for them on iMovie, and as the day ends they all go home slightly disappointed by the actual results of trying to make a movie without a script, budget or any acting or camera skills.

    I find that when a bunch of 20-30 somethings with English lit degrees from expensive east coast liberal arts colleges essentially do the same thing, it's not nearly as charming or quaint.

    Crispin Glover was like the DaVinci of mumblecore back in the glory days of casting an entire film with people with Downs Syndrome and shooting it on camcorder in the park... and I paid to see it in the cinema.

    If I happen to die, feel free to acknowledge this post as my suicide note.

    Would Transformers: Revenge of the Racists be considered mublecore since they shot without a script for the most part?

    Probably not unlike the mumblecore filmmakers themselves, I read a lot of post-structuralist literature in high school and got suckered into believing it was good. I'm tainted by that.

    yep. I was sixteen when I read Barthelme's Me and Miss Mandible, and I've wished I could write like that ever since.
