The Big Country

Two weeks ago I shared with y'all a link to the annual Nashville Scene Film Poll, which I participated in and which had some quotes about the movie year that was 2020 -- well if you'd like a little more from me and my poll-collaborators a bonus batch of answers has been dropped over here. One of the questions was "What 2020 film do you wish you'd seen on the big screen?" and I was surprised by my own answer, Chloé Zhao's Nomadland. I wasn't surprised in a bad way -- I agree with myself, funny that -- I just would think I'd normally answer something more bombastic. I must've been in a mood.

But that reminds me -- I never wrote a review of Nomadland! And I probably never will! Not with Sundance starting on Thursday anyway. So just let me say this movie will most definitely be in my Top 10 of 2020, I really love it, and you should find time for it. It's so good it wiped Frances McDormand's "Three Billboards" slate clean -- that's how good it is. And I'm not just saying that because they sent me a copy of that IMAX poster in the mail last week, either. How cheap do you think I am? (Don't answer that.)
