One of my favorite films this year at Sundance was the Duplass Brothers’ film Cyrus (see our review here). While its storyline doesn’t do much to transcend the tropes of a standard romantic comedy/dramedy, the Duplass brothers make their characters seem so alive and authentic that you can’t help but feel like you’re watching something completely unique.

After the jump, see/hear my interview with Duplass, in which he discusses the tough road to Sundance and why the term “mumblecore” needs to die.

Here’s video of our interview. Note that I turn on the camera before I turn on the tape recorder and “officially” start the interview, so you’ll see some of my disastrous pre-interview persona:
