Le Mouvement Mumblecore

Le Mumblecore semble être le premier mouvement cinématographique américain important du 21ème siècle. Ces films sont caractérisés principalement par une production « fauchée », des sujets tournant autour des relations entre personnes de vingt à trente ans, des dialogues en partie improvisés et des acteurs non professionnels.
Le mot mumblecore a été forgé en 2005 lors du festival du film de South by Southwest. Les critiques ont aussi employé les termes « bedhead cinema » (cinéma de tête de lit) et « Slackavetes », un mot-valise venant de Slacker, film des années 90, bavard et au son sale, et du nom du metteur en scène John Cassavetes.
Il rassemble des réalisateurs qui ont tourné leur premiers films à moins de 30 ans dans les années 2000. Les figures emblématiques en sont notamment Andrew Bujalski, Joe Swanberg les frères Duplass et Greta Gerwig.
