Directed by Alexander Payne

Alexander Payne takes such a long time in-between making films that I just simply forget how amazingly gifted he is as a filmmaker. His newest is pure, midwestern poetry. He has the innate ability to make films that defy categorisation: they are simply stories about characters who move and grow on you the longer the films go on. Shot in beautiful black-and-white, Nebraska moves along like a gorgeous swan-song, anchored by a wonderfully anachronistic Bruce Dern. I await Alexander Payne’s next film in utter anticipation.
