Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Nebraska (2013)

Directed by Alexander Payne

Starring Bruce Dern, Will Forte, June Squibb, Bob Odenkirk


The movie is as confused as Woody is. It’s black and white to imply that it’s an art film and slightly quirky in a Fargo or Napoleon Dynamite sort of way, but if you strip all that away, all we have left is a dumb premise and wooden performances.

Forte is personable, but his performance is lacking. I know it’s a drama, but I really wanted him to be a little funny. Mom has a few good lines.
