GreenCine's coverage of Choking Man made me realize that the mumblecore movement is picking up a great deal of steam in the indie world. The topic's been covered in the Daily number times ( 4/22, 9/07) and elsewhere (check out this cool map of the mumblecore world on cinephiliac, also featured on the Spout.com group dedicated to the genre).

Some filmmakers are a little annoyed when their films are labeled as mumblecore. Some think the term has no meaning. What do you guys think of it being considered a movement or genre? What are your favorite mumbley-licious films/filmmakers?

For me, the flicks are hit or miss- loved Me and You and Everyone You Know because it was the first mumblecore film I saw without realizing its association with the genre. Other ones like Year of the Dog (although the dog in that movie is the cutest eva) are only so-so in my book; only so much unfunny awkwardness you can stand in one movie, I guess.

I've got the mumblies for mumbles!
