A movie not so much about the death of the American Dream but the people poisoned by its lie. Everyone in this film has been beaten down over the years, and one by one their aspirations of greatness have been squashed. It's a magnificent microcosm of the last of a generation, and one of the most "American" films made in a very long time. It's honest, heartfelt and complicated, which is why it'll probably be ignored after Oscar season passes, which is a shame -- it's great.

Humans are such hypocrites. They may seem nice, smiling, caring about each other. But introduce money into the game and they start another World War. At first, I cared little about Nebraska, as I couldn't get involved with its characters. But once the film grasps you, it never let's go. The idiosyncratic characters and wonderful dialogue make it a delight to watch. Loved the ending.

Felt like a knockoff of The Straight Story minus the excitement and likable characters. Bruce Dern is an old fuck who plays an old fuck - such a brave performance you guys. Poor acting, even worse screenplay, and just all around boring and uninteresting. Will Forte is the farthest thing from a movie star I've ever seen, he's going to be annoying us for years. Payne needs to stick to writing his own movies. A hot air film that no one will remember.

A requiem for the American Midwest, where people are stuck in another time, held back by their own lies and ineptitudes, lacking any kind of upward mobility. Unfortunately, Payne tends to get schmaltzy and needlessly humanistic, so it ends with a sense of redemption that doesn't quite match the feeling of longing and insignificance that marks the lives of practically every character in the movie, but overall it's an effective road movie and often times very funny.

Bleak and dreary, northern prairie winter backdrop doesn't affect these characters who are so focused on the mundane, they're incapable of recognizing the humor or the irony of their profound everyday b&w existence. They're so busy lying to themselves, the lies they tell others are spewed out unchecked--except for Kate, Woody's fishwife, who tells it like it is no matter what. Good to see Dern again, though I kept wondering if he grew those nose hairs for the part or if they were wardrobe.

I could not stop smiling even during the darkest parts of the movie. Bruce Dern steals this movie with an amazing performance supported by a cast that doesn't get swallowed up behind his great performance. The script is heart-warming and deep. One of my favorite movies of 2013.

A pessimistic black comedy about human ties and the fragile falseness which welds them, with the exception of that potentially remarkable force called family. Reminiscent of the Coens' work except with more believably human characterizations (not a knock against either) and Dern especially delivers a brilliant performance which blends pathos, disorientation and flaw and it stands at the heart of this film.

Touching and humorous exploration about how striking it big allows you to separate your real friends from the pretenders. While grimly sardonic, this is still very much a Payne film, striking a genuine note as it wanders along a sad but mostly comic path, with a definite empathy for its characters. Dern is quite marvellous as the near-senile, boozing Woody.

Aims to give you that warm and fuzzy feelin'. But arguably that is undercut a bit by its persistent whimsicalness. There is humor to be found in its portrayal of milieus and family dynamics. But most of the jokes, many of the oh-no-Squibb-didn't just-say-that variety, are less than refined. People her and Dern's age probably find her pricelessly funny, I imagine.

Payne's decision to shoot this in black and white definitely amplifies the simplistic sometimes dreary lives of the small town walking dead. Dern is playing essentially himself so kudos to Payne for utilizing it (Nicholson has been doing this for decades). Forte's straight man is a bit off at times, but still a pretty admirable take. Always love seeing Odenkirk.

Most overrated movie I've seen in a long time. Just because it's drab, that doesn't mean it's authentic. Just because every character is terminally disconnected from the others, that doesn't mean it's deep. It's just a dour, purposefully bland, utterly predictable indie road movie. Did we need another one, really? Should add that I'm from rural Nebraska, and have followed Payne's career. Considering he's known for his connection to Nebraska, he doesn't really seem to know the state that well.

Really really good movie, Nebraska doesn't lack a troubled pacing and Payne's directing is delivered in a black-and-white fashion, which I for one loved personally, it really sets the mood better. It's also very well written and Dern is amazing. Good supporting actors too. Worth watching as it is beautifully shot and made.

This was a really nice film, which didn't come as a surprise with Alexander Payne directing. He's so good at portraying the human condition. The screenplay is also really good. I liked how the film avoided getting too overwrought or melodramatic. The characters were great and felt very real. Dern was perfect and the rest of the cast matched. It's a quiet, understated film, but I was still emotionally involved and I liked it a lot.

A great testament that old people are these sort of sad clowns plagued simultaneously by both their future and their past. A true burden to an empathetic society yet methodic, plainspoken and hilarious. Payne captures all of that in this grayish comedy.

this is how you do character-driven storytelling right. you don't shove facts into people's faces, you give hints and let them figure out the rest. this is beautifully done here, there's hilarious bits on life and how everything is just one big grey area (which i think is strongly supported by the monochrome visuals). bruce dern most likely won't take the oscar home, because the movie doesn't have that much public appeal, but still his performance is flawless.

Very well acted by everybody, especially those not known for dramatic roles (as soon as I see Bob Odenkirk I expect him to start shilling a mop used to clean your other dirty mops). That said, the story is touching enough that I don't ever want to watch it again. I'd hate to say that boobs and explosions are the only things I'm here for, but I think we can all agree that human emotions just get in the way of life.

It is nice that they still do films where skilful aged actors/actresses can shine. I liked the work of June Squibb. She's got a juicy character. The idea was close to The Straight Story, but as funny as it partially was it failed to build a solid plot. To cut down the running time and more stronger ending would not do any harm.

This is probably easy to overrate--Payne maybe gives it more scope and majesty than it deserves. But it is pretty terrific. A small-scale story about a sad, beaten-down old guy and his sad, beaten-down middle-aged son, quietly raging against the anonymity of their lives and trying to do whatever they can to go out like big shots. Often funny and finally upbeat, but a pretty potent account of the bleak Midwest; Dern and Forte are exceptional.

Wonderful film. As a premise for a road trip, this one seems one of the less convoluted ones and with a terrific character journey at the heart. Played out with the darkness of humans on display, there is still plenty to laugh at, even in the midst of greed, dysfunction and despair. The ending is a pleasant redemption for the viewer and the hapless Woody.

Black and white! Really? The story is about an old man consumed with the idea that he has won a million dollar sweepstakes from a familiar magazine subscription scam. Determined to get to Nebraska to claim his prize, he sets out on foot many times. The real story is about the son who tries to help him and reconnect with his aging father. They visit their home town and it brings out the vultures and opportunists among them. The ending was sweet and unexpected. Very slow but ultimately satisfying.

The characters take a while to get under your skin but once they do they stay there. The soundtrack is fantastic, and like some of Payne's other work this captures small-town USA melancholy in such an impressive way. Not to mention the woes of old age and time gone by. Very genuine. My favorite film of his. Dern is great and Forte compliments him well.

Nebraska is a simple yet solid film that explores both the good and bad natures of family. Bruce Dern & Will Forte are both amazing together and their journey as father and son is both touching and pleasing. The supporting cast is strong also. The black and white surprisingly feels appropriate. It sets the gloomy tone of the film and it amplifies the themes of desperation and loneliness. The screenplay is superb and there are several segments of dialogue that are genius. A satisfying watch.

Dern and Forte lead the film beautifully, but it's June Squibb who almost manages to steal the entire film with a wonderfully bold and witty performance. Odenkirk deserves a mention too. Payne is just a suburb director of understated comedy-drama and Nelson's script is a gem.

The death of the Midwest in microcosm: the ragged Woody (Bruce Dern) and his son (Will Forte) set out to redeem his meaningless prize, and when they visit their rundown hometown, the past begins to catch up with him. A few weak moments aside, it's another winner from Payne, who perfectly directs Bob Nelson's sweet, funny script. Dern gives a beautifully subtle performance, but the whole cast is fine. Mark Orton's haunting score and Phedon Papamichael's B&W cinematography add to the elegiac feel.

June Squibb is the highlight. She says whatever she is feeling and it comes off as extremely humorous. Unfortunately that doesn't carry a film of 2 hours. It brings the human element to the film, but really where this film lacks is the plot development. The characters are real and so is their situation, but the plot never really allows them go grow.

A heartwarming and charming movie. I adore the concept - the low-key road movie about an elderly man going to claim a sweepstakes "prize" - and the movie lives up to its promise in every way, offering a bountiful array of performances comedic and dramatic. Stark, beautiful black-and-white cinematography enhances the honest, realistic feel, and the compelling, often witty screenplay allows room for its characters to breathe. Beautiful.

Nope. The script goes way to easy on these characters and always chooses the blunt humor over a true argument about them and their situation, which is called the USA. And Payne, again, finds solutions for problems he isn't really interested in. He doesn't look close enough. Sometimes the happyend is more cynical than the bitter end. It's the case here. The score, that boasts with his simplicity way to much and the comic-directing (in the fight-scenes especially!) doesn't help either.

Payne's most artsy film manages to avoid typical distraction of road "existential" movies -- as in colorful shots of landscapes, for example, or poetic voiceovers -- to build a funny Paris, Texas-like tale of aging -- the filmmaker's most urgent theme --, self-discovery and family catharsis. Every encounter this old man has with old folks and relatives feels like the last of their lives -- and the characters seem to know that by shaking hands and saying goodbye like everyday acts of courtesy.

Dern's win at Cannes was well-deserved, his performance never backing down from showing his character's genuine bewilderness at all moments. The tragic elements are perfectly understated, and Forte and Squibb put in great turns too, with "You can all go FUCK yourselves!" being perhaps the hardest I've laughed in a cinema all year.

Payne could be Tsai if he didn't constantly remind his audience he was in on joke. Of course he's condescending, but at the same time, I have relatives like this. Touching, at times, but kind of goes overboard with the sappy stuff. It tries too hard to be funny (the mom) but it still isn't a complete disaster.

Payne has created his own niche out of the road trip genre. However it's obvious that he hasn't really evolved as a director at all. This is really the same piecemeal family and friends themes being explored again and again. People living in desperation, the awkward family dialogue, the inner loneliness, etc.. every beat feels like a retread of his prior films. Despite that it still draws you in because the acting is great plus putting small town America under a microscope never gets old.

Another wry, character-driven comedy/drama from Payne, but he's good at it. This one has a very attractive B&W aesthetic that makes it feel like a cross between a Wenders road movie from the 70s and a grim Coenesque existential comedy. There are some inelegant moments, especially those that focus on the selfish small-town folk after Woody's fortune, but Payne's assured direction and especially Dern's excellent performance make this worth watching.

A hilariously weird film that just has such an interesting vibe to it. The black and white effect in the movie works so well considering the town this movie takes place in.

A grim, minimalist film about people who came from nowhere, and are going nowhere. The little nub of a plot sympathizes with the tinyness of the characters it serves. After the movie's run its course, even the meaningless resolution seems ill-earned.

Starkly filmed rumination on age and getting older, from both Dern, as he tackles possible senility, and Forte, coming to terms with his father and the prospect of commencing the same journey. Squibb is a brilliant comedic scene stealer in support, but it's a shame that (typically for director Payne) this strong female character is denied her own shot at genuine redemption. Well performed and perfectly cast right down the line, with Keach particularly good as a malevolent "good old boy".

For the first time that I can recall, I wasn't put off by what I perceived was Payne's disdain for his lead characters. There's a real affection for the father-son pairing in this film, a generosity in their portrayal, that gives the film a beating heart. Everyone else around the father-son are pretty one note, and while Squibb's wife character has some funny moments, it's ultimately the son's awakening of understanding and compassion for his father that makes this such a great story.

A comedy/drama for mainstream viewers who desire some indy cred. At the same time, a film that arthouse fans might scorn. My reaction is somewhere in the middle: it was fine, but seemed more like a middling, rather bland comedy/drama--sort of like Payne's Academy nominated films (read: NOT *Election*--which was darker and more interesting). I suspect June Squibb as the wife/mother will steal the show for some. ps72

Its an interesting slice of life film. Something I don't normally gravitate towards. The directing and screenplay are solid. The decision to make it black and white adds a lot of character to the film. June Squibb and Bruce Dern are really good in this, as well as a lot of the random supporting characters. Will Forte is admirable in his first major dramatic role. Overall the film just does an excellent job of feeling authentically midwestern and presenting that setting to the audience.

Usually I really hate those kind of films and there are plenty of elements I disliked in this one. But for some reason I could see past a lot of it and just enjoy myself, sort of. I wouldn't particularly recommend this, but I also wouldn't generally advise against watching this film. I don't feel very strongly about this film either way. You could watch worse I guess. Nothing special.

I fell in love with this movie from the very beginning, it is just a beautiful film. The black and white works so well for this type of general malaise that has washed itself over all of these characters. The dialogue is great, its a very believable film, highly enjoyable. Bruce dern should have won all awards.

Simple and amusing, mildly touching, but nothing groundbreaking. I like how naturalistic the dialog is. I've lived in plenty of rural locales (and known plenty of old people), and the way these people think and talk is absolutely spot on. Bruce Dern does a great job, but I feel Will Forte was miscast. Not that he's bad per se, but he just isn't cut out for this type of role - his "comedy face" shows through, which works great in his funny roles but here comes across as sub-par acting.
