'Jeff, Who Lives at Home,' the Duplass Brothers, and That Whole Mumblecore Thing

For Gawker, I shared my enthusiasm for Jeff, Who Lives at Home, which really impressed me. I'd heard such mediocre things from friends who'd seen the film at Toronto and Sundance, but I think this is the best film the Duplass brothers have made since their debut, The Puffy Chair. My article touches on what makes Jay and Mark's career so special -- and also why I've never liked that term "mumblecore."
