Hustlers, not Mumblers

Aymar Jean Christian disagrees with the image of his generational peers created by Mumblecore movies, at Spilce Today.

[That's hustlers as in people who are busy trying to get stuff done, not sex workers (i guess that meaning of the term hustler is more of a 60's or 70's thing)]

From the article:

"Why do I care about a tiny indie film few people have ever seen? Because the critical establishment—old people—seems to think this is an accurate portrait of my generation. A small bunch of films have followed in Funny Ha Ha's footsteps, in a genre often called "mumblecore"—after each character's general inability to communicate—or "Slackavetes" (after John Cassavetes) or "bedhead cinema." The genre's directors—Ry Russo-Young, the Duplass Brothers, Joe Swanberg, Aaron Katz, among a few others—paint similar portraits of an ineffective, urban, over-educated youth who don't know who the hell they are and have little idea where they are headed. They are the arty cousins to the stoner films of Judd Apatow."
