Mutual Appreciation at the Grand Illusion

It doesn’t seem possible that Mutual Appreciation, one of the corwning achievments of the Mumblecore movement (some might say one fo the only good products of the Mumblecore movement) should be old enough to be in need of restoration. But here we are in 2019 and Andrew Bujalski’s now 13 year old film has indeed been restored and is playing four days this week at the Grand Illusion. His prior film, Funny Ha Ha, will be playing there next week. Bujalski has in recent years moved onto somewhat higher profile work: with the oddball minor sensation Computer Chess, the oddball rom-com Results, and the oddball workplace comedy Support the Girls, he’s responsible for some of the finest American films of recent years. Here’s a chance to catch up with where he started. And yes, it kind of killed me not to put Legend of the Demon Cat in this spot. A film far too good to be paired with SIFF’s novelty showing of a  Cat Video Festival.
