Funny Ha Ha (2002) | 8

Mumblecore gets a lot of shit from a lot of people but I love it. I think there’s something so interesting about people just talking and trying to navigate mundane (and sometimes seemingly insignificant) problems. Maybe it’s just easier for me to relate to stuff like this as someone who struggles with and overanalyses every social interaction, but whatever the reason, I really respect the movement and the statement that it makes about what sorts of issues or events are worthy of being dealt with in films. I mean, sure, the production value and acting are subpar, but I genuinely feel that Funny Ha Ha is still worth watching and maybe (probably) even important.
