Nomadland

Nomadland ★★★★½

a great movie and frances mcdormand is just, well, she's frances fucking mcdormand so she's just perfect.

would probably get five stars but i'm deducting because chloe zhao's naturalistic style - which is otherwise amazing - fails to properly convey the godlike luminosity of david strathairn's silver hair

given that most of the characters here were played by actual nomads i'm optimistic that most of the characters in 'eternals' will be played by actual eternals

anyway, stupid jokes aside, nomadland is pretty wonderful and moving, and above all a very compassionate look at the underbelly of modern corporate capitalism
