If Nomadland achieves anything at the academy it'd be a disgrace to its longstanding heritage of awarding films that leave an impact on its audience,and for me it left just none - not because the issue it addresses is insignificant rather itsIf Nomadland achieves anything at the academy it'd be a disgrace to its longstanding heritage of awarding films that leave an impact on its audience,and for me it left just none - not because the issue it addresses is insignificant rather its of prime importance but the presentation is slow, scattered, and doesn't capture your attention for too long. Frances Mcdormand had taken up more challenging roles in the past, and this isnt even near to her best. Finally, this film must be released immediately to the global audience instead of travelling through and garnering festival fever. Only then, can Nomadland be truly judged for its forgettable film-making. Expand

Garbage. No one dies for lack of healthcare or a decent job. They die because they feel like it, or because they are misfits with personal flaws. Go read the book instead.

I'm feeling pretty disappointed so far. I can't stop comparing this to an episode of Dirty Jobs, with Frances McDormand as whatever that guy's name is. All the characters are just monologuing at each other. it's driving me nuts! I reallyI'm feeling pretty disappointed so far.

Meandering and romanticizing American poverty. Long pan shots of beautiful landscapes with ambient music == atmosphere although it seems that this is such a common trend in cinema nowadays, but it comes off as rather lazy film-making to meMeandering and romanticizing American poverty. Long pan shots of beautiful landscapes with ambient music == atmosphere although it seems that this is such a common trend in cinema nowadays, but it comes off as rather lazy film-making to me reminiscent of a film-student’s idea of what is “artistic” rather than being particularly deliberate.
