Kurdt's Favourite 21st Century American Indie/Mumblecore

Ok so a lot of this isn't technically mumblecore but that's kind of the term I use to blanket all these 21st century indies. I'm talking super indie, so I probably won't include things like Frances Ha even though it fits the criteria since that feels like a bigger film than any of these, y'know? Some may fit into a genre but I've tried to keep it down to films where plot is never primary.
