Mumblecore gets a lot of well articulated love from The New Yorker
Read all about it, with commentary, & follow the link to The New Yorker article at Filmmaker Magazine Blog. Article is not for Mumblecore haters, but for fans it's probably a very good read.
And regardless of how you feel about Mumblecore movies & makers, it might be nice to see some ultra low budget indies getting some attention and access/a warm introduction to a whole new set of audiences - possibly.
