Nebraska Movie Review


Ratings:4/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN 

Nebraska, directed by Alexander Payne, is one of my favorites of this year’s Best Picture Oscar nominees. It’s the kind of movie we don’t often see at the cinemas because it’s utterly simple, and because it’s about real people who’re utterly ordinary.For all its strengths, the film is ultimately a showcase of some fine acting. But the film belongs to 77-year-old Dern, who delivers a bruisingly honest, riveting performance as the dazed protagonist.I’m going with four out of five for Nebraska. It’s a quietly moving film that’ll stay with you. I couldn’t shake it off for days.

There are moments of melancholy in this study of father-son bonding and there are plenty of times where you laugh aloud but for the most part, the film bursts at the seams with many little quirks. Moving at its own pace, this is a fantastic study of Mid West America, where time almost stands still. The soundtrack is also as authentic to the theme as it gets. Black-and-white with plenty of shades of grey,* Nebraska* is a road trip film like no other.

Nebraska is so many things at once that you wonder how director Alexander Payne and writer Bob Nelson, managed to fit it all into a story so spare.The film is in black and white, which might be a daunting prospect for some of you. But the minimalism serves these fraught, sad lives well. And a special mention of 84-year-old Oscar-nominated actress June Squibb whose tart tongue is unforgettable. Do see Nebraska. It is a thing of beauty. I’m going with four stars.

Ratings:4.5/5 Review By: Raja Sen Site:Rediff

This is a very special film, possibly the least contrived among this year’s Oscar nominees. In the end, it doesn’t feel like an epiphany; it feels like life. You know what’s coming, but you aspire for more — and, if you’re lucky, find it in the unlikeliest places. The hint lies in the choice of colour. Nebraska is not merely a black comedy, but one laced with light, with hope, with brightness. Black and White, then. Sometimes they do make ‘em like they used to.

Ratings:4/5 Review By: Tushar Joshi Site:DNA

One of the most beautifully shot and executed films of the year, Nebraska is a poignant story of a father-son relationship and everything that has led them to this very moment in their lives. The film is much more than a story of a dysfunctional family where the son wants to mend ways with his dad. As it progresses, Nebraska, which is shot in black and white, engages us with its simple plot yet complex take on human relationships and life. If human emotions and how they play out in different situations intrigue you then Nebraska will definitely touch your heart with its simple yet beautiful storyline.

The only drawback of the film is its tendency to drag at times. Though the movie is generally well-paced, some parts tend to become too slow to remain effective. Nebraska expertly explores the themes of greed and shifting loyalties. The film also efficiently combines cynicism and hopefulness. It’s a beautiful, poignant film perfect for a Sunday afternoon with your family.
