Neo-Neo Realism vs. Mumblecore

Well, Marshal Fine's article is the first that I've seen by a critic that is not ecstatic about Goodbye Solo, and, AND, he says he finds Mumblecore movies more interesting than Neo-Neo Realist movies. Here is the controversial paragraph:

"But that's a trademark of this neo-neo-realism. These movies are not about much of anything; no one says much of anything; and no one does much of anything. Say what you will about the so-called mumblecore school of filmmaking - with its slapdash aesthetic and endless self-regarding conversations - but at least those movies seem to have something on their minds, beyond creating a mood."

Read the rest of Fine's article at Huffington Post.

This is April Fool's Day, so, there is the possibility that Fine's article is less than sincere.

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.

Great movie, well written, well acted.  An interesting NYC experience.

Check out the movie at Netflix -
