"I don't know any filmmaker who embraces the term mumblecore. By grouping us all together, it's kind of unfair, like grouping all films that cost $8 million and have a written script and 35mm film are all the same. At the same time, the usefulness, I recognize - it brought attention to small films that no one would have paid attention to."
