4.0 out of 5 stars A very good film and a look at modern Americana December 21, 2013
Format:DVD
Theatrical review. There may be spoilers.

Director Alexander Payne delivers another piece of Americana and like his 2004 film "Sideways," it's a road tripper. Early on one is reminded of Peter Bogdonovich's "The Last Picture Show." The vast landscapes of the great plains of Montana, South Dakota and ultimately Nebraska replace flat and dusty north Texas, but like the 1971 masterpiece, Payne chooses to shoot in black and white.

Aging and on the cusp of dementia, Woody Grant (wonderfully played by Bruce Dern) believes he has won a million dollars. He's received one of the Publisher's Clearing House promotions and is determined to get from his home in Billings to Lincoln in order to collect his winnings. His cranky wife, Kate (award-worthy June Squibb) won't take him so he makes a couple failed attempts at walking. His youngest son David (Will Forte) finally agrees to take him, just to keep him from wondering off on his own. Along the way, Woody falls in his motel room which requires a trip to the local ER. Woody's mobility is not only impacted by his age but by the fact he sneaks in a drink whenever he can.

David convinces Woody to stay with his brother Ray over the weekend in a small withering town in Nebraska. This is where Woody grew up. Word leaks out that Woody has won a million dollars and everyone in town assumes it is the lottery. Many of Woody's old friends get quickly reacquainted especially his former partner played by Stacy Keach. Then of course, the nephews, and assorted in-laws all want a small piece of Woody's "fortune." Kate and Ross, the older son (Bob Odenkirk), join the reunion and help David keep things in check. This is where Ms. Squibb really shines. Cantankerous as she is, she loves her husband and wants to protect him.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Agree With the Golden Globes December 13, 2013
Format:DVD
When a JayFlix.net participant tells me to see a movie, I usually do! This time is no different, and, as usual, I'm really glad I did. (And the Golden Globes agreed with five nominations.) In my personal experience, I have... TWICE... heard that someone had won a sweepstakes, only to learn that it was early onset senile dementia or in the other case, Alzheimer's. This is what we suspect when our elderly hero sets out for Lincoln, Nebraska to collect his million dollars. Problem is, he no longer has a working vehicle, nor does he have a driver's license, so he's walking... from Montana. His son is pulled into the story by his besieged wife.

Full disclosure, I spent my early years on a farm in South Dakota, so the set design, the clothes, the speech patterns, the scenery, the pace, the people, and the small faded towns of Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota and Nebraska evoked fond memories. (No, I didn't have an unhappy childhood, sorry...)

We watch:
* Bruce Dern ("Madison") is the booze-addled curmudgeon who wants his million dollars. Dern has worked for decades before landing this role of a lifetime! He won "Best Actor" at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.
* Will Forte ("Saturday Night Live") is his unfortunate son, unable to talk his father out of that haywire obsession.
* June Squibb ("About Schmidt") is the wife with a tongue like barbed wire. She has lashed her husband for decades until he rarely hears a word she says.
* Bob Odenkirk (Lots of TV) is the "good" son who has landed a job as a television newscaster. When he gets into a fight he shouts, "Don't hit the face!"
* Stacy Keach (Lots of television) is a former business partner who sees this unexpected windfall as a way to collect some money from our hero.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the wait February 22, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I live in Nebraska in a county of over four hundred square miles and not a single traffic light. I have friends and relatives in NYC and enjoy the contrast. My mother was born in New York City and died in Nebraska, choosing to live here for sixty five years. We have everything in our small town, a critical care access hospital, an award winning winery/microbrewery and great stores and services. We don't have a movie theater! A drive of nearly an hour takes us to the closet one with digital technology. A nice closer one is dependent on 35 millimeter film. A friend and I drove to a showing and were two minutes late due to being behind a truck hauling scrap metal, the new burgeoning industry in Kansas and Nebraska. This was a 5 PM showing and was so crowded we had to sit in the front row. Like a good book, I was sucked into the story in no time. I have dealt with aging parents on the verge of dementia, the brain trust at the local bar with the stomachs emerging over their belts and cousins whose thought processes are mildly suspect. They were all here. What struck me was the laughter at times where I thought I would land on the floor and the sympathy I had for the brothers and their parental dilemma. I will treasure this as I do "The Last Picture Show" as a film about people in transition and making the best of a difficult situation with grace and humor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't Say Enough Good About It February 5, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Pros -
Impeccably acted, by everyone involved.
Grandly photographed. Gorgeous to behold.
Reveals much, without necessarily articulating it.
Perceptive, an incredibly rendered slice of life

Cons -
Now that this one is done, it will be a while before Alexander Payne has another movie. And that is the only negative thing I have to say.
