ALEXANDER THE LAST (2009) - Joe Swanberg
Dull actor from Tennessee nearly threatens to disrupt dull NYC marriage between uncaptivating actress and lethargic musician. Throw in a small dash of sister rivalry, a smidgen of nudity and you almost very nearly just about have some dramatic conflict. I think this one had something to do with the myriad temptations (read: sexual temptations) artistic types must contend with in the pursuit of their "art". Either that, or it's just about people too lazy to really commit to fucking around. You know what the best thing about mumblecore movies is? They are mostly under 80 minutes long.
