Jeff, Who Lives at Home
Of Mice and Men for the mumblecore set. Were it not for happenstance and a zoom lens that appears slightly dislodged from its turret so as to artlessly dart at and away from its subjects, filmmakers Jay and Mark Duplass would have no idea how to tell a story. Unskilled at depicting abstract characters in realistic settings, the brothers fare even worse at establishing a fantasy universe in which their man-children can cavort. With Jason Segel and Ed Helms. 2012.
