    A Documentary Feel

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. Movies that feature acting and direction that evoke an organic, documentary-like realism. Some of the elements that characterize this style include: Handheld cameras Visual drabness (muted colors, grainy film-stock, etc) Lack of flashy techniques (visual effects, narration, pop soundtrack, etc) Nonprofessional actors in key or tertiary roles. Related: actors with looks or speech atypical in films (obesity, "low class" accents, etc) Improvised or prosaic dialogue and natural conversation rhythms (interruptions, stammering, "ums," etc) Silence: scenes with little or no dialogue Ambient noises in place of musical score (traffic, fluorescent lights, birds, etc) Stillness: scenes with little or no action A realistic plot; often with difficult ("gritty") subject matter and a lower socio-economic setting. This mostly unclassified documentary-like style ([url=https://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2011/01/06/AR2011010605897.html]Sometimes[/url] ridiculously labeled [url=https://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/22/magazine/22neorealism-t.html]"Neo-neorealism"[/url]) has antecedents in Italian Neorealism, French New Wave, and New Hollywood. It shares elements with (but is not equivalent to) Dogme 95 and Mumblecore, and is mostly a post-2000 phenomenon (kickstarted and most heavily influenced by the 90s films of the Dardenne brothers). International hotspots include France, America, Romania, and Iran. Please leave suggestions! I will add more. Keep in mind that "Mockumentary" films like Borat, Man Bites Dog, Blair Witch, Spinal Tap, etc, are a different animal and do not qualify.
