Emma 🔆’s review published on Letterboxd:
I’m having a very hard time coming up with a review for this because Nomadland truly left me at a loss for words.
I know everybody is saying the same thing but this really is cinematic poetry. Chloé Zhao has crafted one of the most remarkably peaceful and transfixing pieces about grief and moving forward with some of the most beautiful imagery and one of the loveliest scores I have heard in a long time.
It’s hard to say whether this is Frances McDormand’s best performance because every Frances McDormand performance is her best performance (yes this includes 1998’s Madeline and her role in Noah Baumbach’s Madagascar 3) but she really is exceptional here.
It is really sad though because we got robbed of having two Chloé Zhao movies this year and she deserves the world.
