October 2016: Mumblecore Month

Here at matt’s nerdy life, we have decided October is the perfect month to celebrate the independent sub-genre of film known as Mumblecore.
As well as an article on the history of Mumblecore and its influences, we will look back at some of the vital films in the movement, including work by Joe Swanberg, Andrew Bujalski and the Duplass Brothers. There will also be an analysis of the state of Mumblecore, including the emergence of a so-called Post-Mumblecore genre. Not only that but there will be a review of Joe Swanberg’s new Netflix show, Easy, which has recently been released on the streaming site.

So if you enjoy your movies slow, with amatuer actors and improvised dialogue, stay tuned!
I realise I didn’t really sell that well…
