The low-fi craze mumblecore, with its casual, hip camera techniques and sometimes barely audible improvised dialogue, has dominated Sundance, SXSW and other U.S. indie film festivals for the last few years. 'Cyrus' seeks to expand on that success, thanks to filmmaker brothers Jay and Mark Duplass and the summer's most unlikely hero, Jonah Hill. Grade: B.
'Humpday' is much more than its playful title might suggest. Writer/director Lynn Shelton’s lo-fi comedy touches on a plethora of weighty topics (sexual boundaries, artistic merit, identity, parenthood, gender and more( in a manner so funny and matter of fact that many viewers will feel as if they stumbled upon someone's personal home movie. Grade: B plus.
