Made this list as I'm ashamed that I have not seen a single Mumblecore film. I plan to remedy this :)
Are those all good…? :·)
Honestly I have not seen a single one of them, but it's everything I could find that was listed as part of this 'genre', so I highly doubt it :)
I've seen all but 2. I like most of them. The Puffy Chair is one of the best. Medicine for Melancholy is really good too. Cyrus is a little outside of mumblecore. Its made by the guys who made Baghead and Puffy Chair but on a much higher budget. LOL and Kissing on the Mouth are two of my very favorites done on budgets that wouldn't pay a month's rent in a lot of places.
All but 2, that's impressive! I had that feeling about Cyrus from what I'd read, one more vote to remove it and it's gone :)
Yeah, I've been following this group of filmmakers for a few years now. I had Joe Swanberg (Director of Hannah, LOL etc.) as a guest on my podcast recently. Another one you should add is Aaron Katz film Quiet city. He made Dance Party USA and Cold Weather
I think Quiet City was on my list but I was skeptical as it was listed as 1940. Clearly the entry is wrong though so I've added it back. Will check out your podcast too, thanks :)
Do you know where the best (legal) place to find these films to watch is? Netflix selection is pretty slim...
I really enjoyed 'Cold Weather'. The cinematography was breathtaking at times. 'Humpday' was very good as well. I didn't care much at all for 'The Pleasure of Being Robbed'. I guess it's all personal tastes.
I added a few more films to TMDB that are on Letterboxd now. Orphans by Ry Russo Young was pretty good. One of the two main actresses in Lily Wheelwright was excellent. I looked her up to see if she was in anything else found that she died right after the film came out. Autoerotic was a Joe Swanberg/Adam Wingard collaboration from last year. Its like 4 separate stories that are losely connected. Yeast by Mary Bronstein is one of my favorites even though it has some of the most unlikable characters you'll ever see in it. I think you can watch the whole thing on IMDB
It Was Great but I Was Ready to Come Home is from Kris Swanberg. I liked this one a lot too, but I don't know that it is watchable at all. It played several festivals, but I don't know that it ever got picked up or released.
Also Open Five from Kentucker Audley which I also really liked. The website says that will be available online and on DVD starting Feb 2012. So Soon I guess.
Only want to add ones with posters at the moment, which counts out Orphans, but have added the rest, thanks :)
Yeah, the Orphans poster is up now. Takes about a day for changes on TMDb to register at Letterboxd
