Miranda July "Are You The Favorite Person of Anybody?"

I donno about this one, I'm always on the fence when it comes to Miranda July. There is something sort of "cutesy" about her and her work, even her name. Is that her real name? I guess it doesn't matter a lot of people don't work under their real name. I don't. But I have to give it to her, she is a woman getting independent feature films made, awarded, and recognized. She is very popular.

She deals a lot with insecurity, relationships etc.. but what I'm most interested in is her ability to use a sense of community in her work, incorporating several people's viewpoints, and not just her collaborators - but rather complete strangers. She also does a lot of mixing performance art, video art, writing etc.. and I'm always very interested in interdisciplinary artists.
