QUIET CITY (2007) - Aaron Katz

aka Boring Park Slope. This movie gets an A+ for naturalism and F- for just about everything else. I'm down with anti-narrative thing, but not so much anti-interesting. Yes, these are very true-to-life adrift Brooklyn twenty-somethings. Doesn't mean you want to hang out with them for a whole day of nothing much, though that is obviously the point. The punk scene was all about in-your-face aggression. I'm starting to think Mumblecore's m.o. is the exact opposite...in-your-face apathy.
