If you happen to like watching people watch TV, you're in luck because there's huge emotional payoff.
Like all great road trip films that aren't at all about reaching the destination, Payne's Nebraska is as much about not reaching the destination as it is about David (Will Forte) realizing his father, Woody (Bruce Dern) is a human being. Nebraska is a film as important as Rain Man and Schindler's List. If you don't laugh at the absurdity and weep like a forsaken child, your Paxil dosage is too high.
Cold, beautiful reality on a paper plate with a side of fork. How is it Joel and Ethan Coen can even comprehend consummate failure?!
Plot summary: This world needs its dreamers so it can grind them up whole and spit them out in small indiscernible chunks. Oscar Isaac bleeds (elegantly) for 100 minutes onscreen.
